Tali Ben-Eliezer, born in 76. Lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Autodidactic is primarily concerned with figurative painting with the effects of illustration. The topics that concern her are characterized by a lot of black humor, sarcasm and opal. (We in Coco are dead on it) In the works, Tali describes her personal life, every job - story.

'' My work starts many times from a place that is self-conscious but free and liberated and only then does it pass through filters of analysis and thinking. My work emerges from seemingly banal experiences of existence that encounter a lot of absurdity and irony. I try to touch on human, emotional, intimate or social existence experiences through a black humor perspective as a strategy for dealing with the more complex content in reality.

My artistic language intersects with graphics and illustration. The semi-naive visibility combined with more realistic elements, for me, sharpens the contrast between content and form. That is to say, in the form, there is something direct, 'simple' or 'naive' but the content is complex, dark and sometimes morbid.

Many times in my creative work I incorporate text related to pop culture and everyday life. Our existence within a consumer culture exists in almost every work, even if it describes a very intimate and personal moment. The individual always exists within the company and at the same time strives to be cut off from it. My works have a constant tension between two-dimensional and three-dimensional, between drawing and painting, and between realistic and surreal. For me, the contrast between the different elements creates a toughness and tenderness that work together and serve the same message. ''
