About

Leni Dothan

 

An Israeli artist and architect (B.Arch Bezalel Academy of Art & Design, Jerusalem). Born in Tel-Aviv, recently graduated MFA program (distinction) at Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London. Now offered a place at the doctoral program of the Slade.

In her work she reconstruct known narratives from the biblical, classical and mythological world. There she often finds themes based on the most intimate human fears. In her art Dothan strives to blend all her learned skills as an architect, artist and researcher. Her works use renaissance art references as a means of reflecting on present issues and taboos both personal and universal.
