biography

Born in Kiev, FSU, 1976
Lives and works in Israel
Instagram Artsy

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, in 1976, Zoya Cherkassky immigrated to Israel in 1991. She lives and works in Tel Aviv-Yafo. Her works have been shown in premier Israeli art museums and galleries for over a decade, as well as throughout Europe and North America. Her works are held in many museum and private collections around the world. Cherkassky has received various awards and Artist in Residence grants, including; The Israeli Ministry of Culture Prize for Encourage Creativity and for a Young Artist; Bronner Residency in Düsseldorf Germany on behalf of Bronner Foundation and the Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien residency in Berlin.
In her work, Cherkassky expresses her unique capacity to observe, analyze and reconstruct old truths concerning art as well as to formulate the problematics which come with the making of art today. Her works bring together languages stemming from 'high' and 'low' cultures, pop and computer aesthetics. With irony and self-critique and in a variety of modes of expression, she grasps what is essential and knows to give it a contemporary form. As an immigrant from the ex USSR to Israel, Cherkassky deals with issues of identity and alienation as well as the different conflicts that rise in the clash between the cultures.
