Tel Aviv based artist, Julie Filipenko, graduated from the art department of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and is active in the scene of contemporary surrealism both in Israel and abroad.

Filipenko draws inspiration from human relations, the animal world, and memories from her childhood. Filipenko creates fantastical acrylic paintings and graphite drawings, that capture the state of existence between dreams and reality.

She had her first solo show in December 2013 at Swoon gallery, Los Angeles, and since then has continued to exhibit in galleries abroad.
