David Nipo trained at the Jerusalem Studio School. His work has been seen in solo and group exhibitions in Israel and the USA.
The portrait is of Nipo’s colleague and former teacher Aram Garshuni, with whom he runs Hatahana school of drawing and painting in Tel Aviv. The title for the painting comes from a traditional story about a painting competition in which one artist used a dark mirrored surface to reflect his opponent’s work and so claim it as his own. Nipo wanted the work to reflect his and Garshuni’s differing personalities and artistic approaches.
