I believe that the place you grew up in as a child has an enormous effect on you as an adult, whether you are aware of it or not.
I grew up in Iraq, many years ago, before my family and I moved to Israel.
One of my favorite painting themes is the desert towns of Iraq.
I try to transfer to the viewer the essence of Iraq deserts, It's feeling as I remembers it.
Although I grew up in a western city , I always loved visiting Iraq desert towns.
For you - artists, searching constantly for your next theme -
Connect to yourself. Don't try to be someone else. Don't try to hide. Don't be ashamed about who you are. The moment you will find yourself, you will find the authenticity which is so important for an artist. Go back to your childhood. Go back to the most instance experiences you had, good or bad, and create from that point.
Have a lovely day, Sefer
