Hello, my name is Shir Beck and I paint in oil and acrylic.

Born in 1990, I was born in Arad, and moved with my family to the city of Eilat.

I studied painting and dance for many years, I danced classical ballet, tap and flamenco.

I attended elementary school and high school in Eilat.

After my military service, I studied industrial design at Studio 6b in Tel Aviv.

I studied art and painting at Eilat College.

I also took a graphic design course.

I worked for the Nature and Parks Authority in Eilat.

The sea and the desert are part of me.

My paintings reflect the landscape of the cities of Eilat,

The sun, the desert sea.

While I was painting with the rag, an unfinished flamenco dance was created for me.

The painting is reminiscent of the clicks on the canvas like the flamenco legs.

My painting appears on the cover of the book "Wonder" by the author David, which has been translated into 9 languages around the world.

My painting is abstract, I show my love for the sea and desert landscape and the dialogue between them.

In the painting of the mountains and the sea, the power of nature and its power in the Gulf of Eilat are expressed,

The palms are a symbol of desert vegetation and experience in the Eternal City of the Sun.
