Ofer Samra-Actor Turned Painter

I believe Art is about being open and allowing life ideas, color, nature, people etc. to go in. Together, with the Artist’s passion, interests, feelings and point of view, a unique personal art is created.


about

“Since early age I was watching people, animals, nature. I was very curious and interested. Always asked about the nature of behavior.


Born in Israel, moved to the states in mid-eighties, Ofer pursued acting ( Role of “Yusef” in “True Lies”). ”It was there in acting classes where we talked about painters”. That’s when the “Art” seed was planted.

“With painting, I’ve learned to express body, mind and spirit. After studying work by Caravaggio, Egon Schiele, Magritte and Picasso I found figurative work as the main tunnel to express life, passion, emotion, strength and character”.

Ofer’s most recent Art Exhibit was on May 14, 2015, at QART.COM Gallery in Marina Del Rey, California. The Exhibit included a large variety of Ofer’s latest work.
