Bamboo Road: Tel Aviv – Manila
by Anat Heifetz
Extended until 26 August!
In Bamboo Road, Manila-based, Israeli artist Anat Heifetz was struck by how much bamboo resembled fabric rolls. A fashion designer by profession, Anat envisioned painting different patterns and designs on the bamboo stalks to replicate the look of textiles. The result is a fascinating array of bamboos of all shapes and designs, mostly in black and white.
Bamboo Road: Tel Aviv – Manila showcases not just Anat’s love for the craft but it also shows how art can assist in bridging two cultures.
