Artsy

Kainy, an Israeli painter and sculptor, was born in 1981 in Kibbutz Nachshon. She is a BA graduate from HaMidrasha Art Academy in Beit Berl, currently lives and works in Ein Karem.
Kainy's painting technique of watercolor and ink, creates a conflict between nature and culture; when the color blots coalesces into remarkable shapes of figures and scenes. Kainy's great virtuosity and talent makes her one of the most significant aquarellists in Israel.
Her works are held at the Israel Museum collection, as well as in private collections in Israel and around the world.
