Works of hyperrealist artist, Yigal Ozeri displayed at India Art Fair in Delhi

The audience in India will be able to experience how his latest paintings come to life capturing the artist’s enchanting technique– the space between the physical and the abstract. Yigal Ozeri, is best known for his large-scale cinematic portraits of beautiful women in vast transcending landscapes. The Israeli born artist established his career in the New York contemporary art scene where he has resided for over 35 years. The artist‘s oeuvre is rooted in traditional technique which focuses on esthetic and intimacy. Ozeri’s portraits of women resemble classical nymphs, dryads, Botticelli goddesses and Pre-Raphaelite muses. However the artist still manages to capture the essence of contemporary relevance. Ozeri’s paintings appear as if they are coming from a dream. A multitude of tiny brushstrokes make his large scale paintings come alive, giving way to remarkable realism and desirability. Ozeri captures passing moments and brings them back to life. As a result, the viewer finds themselves trapped between reality and fantasy.

Bruno Art Group announces its 10th participation at the India Art Fair 2023, with internationally acclaimed Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri and other artist from Israel and the USA.


Bruno Art Group is honoured to return to India Art Fair 2023 for our 10th anniversary operating at Booth C10. The gallery is thrilled to exhibit the paintings of one of the most prominent hyperrealist artists of our century, Yigal Ozeri. Ozeri has elevated the hyperreal genre to astounding new heights. Following his widely successful exhibitions and art fairs in neighboring Asian countries he will celebrate his first public engagement at the prestigious India Art Fair 2023. The distinctive presentation of his latest series is an unprecedented art installation that will mark the inauguration of Yigal Ozeri in India’s expanding art scene. Many celebrities have already had the privilege of being painted by Ozeri – Whoopi Goldberg, Ai Weiwei, Lizzie Jagger (Mick Jagger and Jeri Hall’s daughter), and Uri Geller to name a few. The global importance of Ozeri’s work was emphasized in 2017 when he was included as one of thirty contemporary artists featured in the exhibition “Hyperrealism – 50 Years of Painting” presented at the Kunsthal Rotterdam. The Artist himself will be present at the IAF 2023 in Delhi. We will be premiering Ozeri’s latest series Americana. The artist has chosen to focus on ‘the diner’ as an American icon; an institution that has its image engraved into the fabric of American life. Ozeri aesthetically captures the most appealing retro- elements from the furniture to the lighting. The chrome accessories reflect pops of neon and bold lines of vibrant colors. Vintage antique memorabilia make their way into the compositions adding a charming nostalgia of yesteryear. The Artist remains true to his painting approach combining sharp detailed brushstrokes with abstract constituents.
