Hi, my name is Ilanit Shamia, I’m a Tel Aviv based artist.
For the past (almost) twenty years, my creative work journeys between art and fashion. Photography, illustration, and fabrics are the main tools in my creative arsenal.
I graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (Photography) and some of my artwork is a part of the HAARETZ – Amos Schoken Art Collection
For five years (2005-2010) I wrote a newspaper column, titled “How We Dress,” that focused on (Surprise, surprise) interesting people and their fashionable choices.
I also have my own hand-made T-Shirts label, dedicated to screen-prints based on my photographs and illustration.
Street Style – An Illustrated Documentary
I started this project (January 2018) by combining two of my biggest passions; photography and drawing – oh, and walking through the city streets looking for interesting moments and people. I have a tendency to stare at people, but what might be seen as a slightly rude behavior is actually pretty funny. My eyes are usually drawn to small details like fabric patterns, a lock of hair blowing softly in the wind or a subtle hand gesture.
