A Heart of the World



Oz El Hai, born in Israel in 1976, channels his passion and energy into vivid abstract art and romantic paintings of women. Using a palette knife exclusively, Oz employs bold colors to create rich and energetic paintings that enchant viewers with an intense, yet tender, presence. His artistic style draws viewers in, captures their attention, and caresses their imaginations.

Oz spent his formative years immersed in the culture of Israel. Fascinated with texture, color, shapes, and forms, Oz studied architecture at the University of Tel Aviv. After mastering the rudimentary skills of sketching and composition, Oz began the pursuit of his true passion-the artistic expression of visions of colors, shapes, and images. Painting professionally since 1994, he has explored many artistic styles from sketching to painting with watercolor, acrylic, and oil on a variety of surfaces including conventional canvas and non-traditional media such as steer hide. Oz has created a unique style, and his talent is widely recognized. Today, you will find his art in exhibitions and galleries throughout the world, and it is sought after for both public and private art collections throughout Europe, Australia, and the United States.

When asked about his style of painting, Oz says, “Simplicity is everything. I try to create excitement and energy through color and movement. I want to trigger the viewer’s emotions and memories. I want my paintings to evoke genuine feelings!”  In his eyes, his works of art are boundless and forever evolving.
