Ilana Shafir is an internationally recognized artist from Israel and co-founder of the Associazione Internazionale Mosaicisti Contemporanei (AIMC). She was born in former Yugoslavia in 1924 and calls her work spontaneous. “I do have a rough idea in my head when I begin a mosaic”, she says. However, she draws inspiration for the exposure of the materials themselves.
This video shows some impressions of her exhibition that was part of the International Festival Ravenna Mosaico in 2011 (in Hebrew).
