Yosi Messiah was born in Israel in 1964. Yosi is a successful, multi award winning figurative abstract artist based in Sydney, Australia.
His work is characterised by a love of mark making, an exuberant and bold colour palette, a vibrant collection of characters and a maelstrom of emotions. Fast and free, his bold colour combinations are an exciting visual experience. His technique of laying down colour and intricate brush strokes in sections, gives a unique sense of depth and movement to his work, bringing the paintings to life.
His still life, portraits and seductive figures form a cohesive body of work. His technique is physical and spontaneous with his use of layers and colours to create the loose lines in his figures. The women and Geishas are imaginary, elegant and soft with exaggerated eyes, expressing their strength, and inviting the viewer to bring their own interpretation to his works.
Yosi’s latest vivacious Sydney harbour landscape paintings, are a result of careful observation of the harbour’s enchanting beauty, reflecting its vibrancy with its ever changing shapes and colours.
