Arie Vardi was born in Chile, graduated in graphics design in Jerusalem and has lived in Scotland since 1991. His original paintings are mainly inspired by a deep connection with the west coast of Scotland, Perthshire and the Mediterranean. The elemental form of the land in Scotland and in special the connective points of sea and shore are of particular interest.
Colour and vibrancy are essential to the work and these are in turn inspired by his time spent by in the Mediterranean. He paints in acrylics, oil and mixed media. Arie’s contemporary jewellery uses Sterling Silver, gold decoration and a variety of semi-precious stones. He creates his pieces by beating and organically shaping the Silver into metal work art.
