After graduating in Graphic Design in Jerusalem Arie Vardi became a member of a Kibbutz on the edge of the Negev Desert where he began to experiment with jewellery.
His paintings are mainly landscapes, inspired by a deep connection with the Scottish countryside and in particular with Perthshire and the West Coast. He begins with sketches on the spot and reference photographs. These are taken back to the studio with the aim to capture the mood and emotion felt when originally contemplating the scenery.
ISLAND BLUE GALLERY
Island Blue Gallery is an art gallery and gift shop located at Baliscate, near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. We have a beautiful, light space filled with works by many skillful Scottish artists ranging from the mysterious and tranquil sweeping landscapes of Garry Brander to the mythical and surreal fantastical worlds of Matylda Konecka. A lot of the prints we stock have a distinctly Scottish feel and truly capture the essence of Scotland's landscape and wildlife.
