Jerusalem comes to life - Israeli artist Yair Emanuel
Today I would like you to meet an extraordinary Israeli Judaica artist who lives and works in Jerusalem. Emanuel is a graduate of Israel's prestigious Academy of Art and Design. Yair Emanuel's stylish works are hand-painted in vivid colors that immediately capture the eye. Inspired by ancient motifs, Yair Emanuel mixes traditional with modern design, while adding his own imagination to create his unmistakable signature look.
Emanuel's unique works include Shabbat candlesticks, Seder Plates, Hanukkah menorahs, hand-embroidered Tallits and much more. Emanuel's Works make some of the mosty popular giffs from Israel. What I especially like about Yair Emanuel's works is the fact that they truely reflect the atmosphere of Jerusalem. Anyone who has ever been to the holy city will know what I'm talking about. With Emanuel's magic touch, the sights of jerusalem magically come to life. You just can't stay indifferent to his works, Each of Emanuel's religious object will make a colorful addition to any interior.
