Israeli artist Dorit Gur’s modern Judaic art is characterized by strong colors, and combines the techniques of acrylic painting and free hand lettering. Strongly influenced by biblical themes, her work centers on Kabbalistic topics: the 72 names of God, the Tree of Life, Creation, and Beginning.

Her world renowned “Bereshit” paintings depict the creation of the world and convey her yearning to experience the harmony that existed in the beginning. Gur’s work has been shown in many single artist exhibitions in Israel, and her paintings are owned by collectors throughout the world. She owns her own gallery in Tel Aviv.
