Ofra Zimbalista 

Zimbalista (1939-2014) was one of the most important female artists in Israel. Ofra was born in Israel where she resided and worked.

She studied lithography, etching and screen-print at the Kalisher Art Academy, in Tel-Aviv.

Zimbalista’s human-sized figures casted from aluminum and bronze were often engaged in acrobatic activities.

Ofra has exhibited in various places all over Europe and Israel. Her works are displayed in public spaces around the world.
