Artnova’s main studio is located
in Moshav Beit Nekofa on Route 1
between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem
(Ein Hemed Interchange) in an
impressive two story building,
lies our main gallery and a huge
studio were exclusive one of a
kind, Original Soft Art Paintings
Replacing the painter’s brush the
artist uses a needle to fasten
materials to the “canvas” which
is either synthetic felt or burlap.
The artist starts with a single
needle and “paints” using strings
instead of a pencil, and synthetic
acrylic fibers instead of colors.
When the painting becomes thick
with layers of fiber the artist
uses a special punch with a
hundred needles to work the fiber
into the fabric and this allows
for complex shading of layer upon
layer of fiber where color is
achieved through the various
shading and layering of
the different colored fibers. The
beauty of this technique is that
at any time prior to finalizing
their creation the artist can
easily remove these fibers and
continue working, without any
waste of materials.
