David Nipo studied at the Jerusalem Studio School, under the guidance of Israel Hirschberg. His work has been seen in group and solo exhibitions in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and was selected for the BP Portrait Award 2009.

The portrait is of Nipo’s agent, Ronald Fuhrer and was made at the sitter’s request. The work began with sketches made in the studio for a portrait bust, however on the day of the first sitting, Fuhrer arrived wearing a fur-collared raincoat and the concept for the portrait changed entirely.
