Shiri Phillips Artist Biography
Shiri Phillips is a graphic designer and painter in Omaha, NE. She studied at the University of Nebraska at Omaha's College of Communication, Fine Arts, and Media and received a bachelor’s degree in Art History. Her works have been influenced by impressionism and the geometric nature of graphic design.
Born in Los Angeles, Phillips relocated to Israel at an early age and returned to the United States to finally settle in Omaha, Nebraska. Her international experiences shape her colorful paintings. Her works have been exhibited in galleries and art fairs throughout the United States, including in New York and Los Angeles.
Impasto painted strokes of bright colors are the framework of artist Shiri Phillips’ abstract artworks. Phillips uses thick strokes of color and places them with precision on canvas, creating a graphic-like or pixelated look. Her art is defined by the deliberate use of upbeat colors to convey an emotional and physical response. Inspired by the vibrant surroundings she found growing up on the Mediterranean and the Southern Californian Coast, Phillips is driven by the philosophy of “color is life.”
“My art is paired with intent to deliver pieces that give the viewer the comfort of structure, along with the emotional release of abstraction. My study and love for Impressionism is also reflected in my art. The bold colors and loose brushstrokes are reminiscent of the great impressionist painters that I fell in love with as a young girl. By overlaying the various mediums in an abstracted or impressionistic way, I hope to create a unique and vivid experience for the viewer.”
