Iris Eshet Cohen (Israel 1963 - )


The newest works of Iris Eshet Cohen, her “Colors of Life” series, are a collection of colorful acrylic paintings created in her painterly application of robust colors and linear definition of movement and texture. The paintings are manifestations of her diverse artistic skills, and the spiritual transcendence of her passion for the pure and simple. Iris always pursued with aesthetic sensitivity that clearly draws from her experience in the field of body makeup, as well as make-up for theater and television.
Iris Cohen evolved as an artist from years working in the Paris and Israel theater and film industry as a make-up and special effects artist. Inspiration comes from her extensive travels and studies of the arts throughout the continents. She completed her studies in Paris in 1987 and worked as a make-up professional manager for an international makeup company (Shiseido) based in Japan. In 1989 she opened her first art studio, combining her knowledge and experience in the cosmetics industry, with her love for sculpting clay and painting.
Iris pursued various techniques and mastered in the ceramics wheel, templates’ development, core foundation of ceramics technology and completed various studies and related techniques for manual sculpture, mosaic and paint works.
A master in many mediums, Cohen has culminated her knowledge and filled her canvases with an exciting freshness of splendorous meandering forms.
“Art does wonders for all of us and it is essential for the soul and the soul base of each and every one”…
