Bio: Shira Ehlers was born and raised in Vienna in 1990. 2010-2013 she studied at Hetzendorf Fashion School and received her BA. Following her studies, Shira travelled through Europe, Turkey, India and Israel, where she let herself get inspired for her future work. 2015-2016 she studied illustration in Vienna and Tel Aviv at the Art Institute Mahon Avni. Shira descended from an artist family, her grandfather was a musician, her father was a talented painter since childhood and her brother Andi Ehlers is a successful Artist. Being the daughter of an Israeli and an Austrian, she sees both of the countries as her home - both influenced her in life decisions and her artistry. Her work consists of different art styles and painting techniques. Delicate ink and pencil drawings as well as collages put together from photographs and watercolor. Combining various dictions enables her to create surreal worlds in her paintings and envision her desire for new impressions. Since autumn 2016 Shira participated in several Artist contests and exhibitions.
