I got to know Snir many many years ago and our relationship only grew stronger as the years went by, when I first met him (around 20 years ago in Tel-Aviv, Israel) he was already getting deep into the world of Art and tattooing and as time went by I started to notice his ever growing range of talents and skills.
Snir is mostly known for his ability to carve people, he is one of the best tattoo artist I’ve seen and his style just keeps getting better and more refined as the years go by, I was honored many times to have his artistic hand carve my skin. The beauty about Snir’s paintings is that it’s totally different spectrum from his tattoo art, sure they do come from the same person but many people who don’t know him and see his art will never guess he is a tattoo artist, as well as people who only know his tattoo work will be surprise to see his fantastic paintings.
Snir has been studying privately with a handful of great local and international masters, he started studying painting in 1999. He studied for 3 years with the well known Menahem Mizrahi (r.i.p). In 2002 Snir went on to study painting with a famous Israeli artist named Aram Girshuni who is known for his realistic style. Snir studied with him for 4 years.
Snir continues to paint and enjoys getting inspired from his surroundings.
To me, Snir is a great inspiration and a fantastic friend, he is fun to work with and I had the pleasure to do a few expositions with him as well as a couple of street art related projects, his art is powerful and full with soul and his tattoos are strong in character and last longer then the people who wear them proudly.
