Gallit Shaltiel is a skilled visual artist who loves to collaborate.
She’s received substantial artistic training, having studied at the Cyprus and Limerick Colleges of Art (CyCA, LSAD), achieved a Fine Art BA in Exeter, then underwent professional photography training in Bristol. She moved to Brighton for her MA in Sequential Design and Illustration (where she gained a distinction) and now teaches in East Sussex.
Gallit finds inspiration for her art in many places, including the inner worlds of her mind and subconscious; from travelling, museums and anatomical diagrams; and in rudimentary, expressive shapes and figures from her child’s drawings. Indeed, silhouette is a constant motif in Gallit’s work. Her pieces usually start as hand-cut card silhouettes, which she then magically transforms by photographing them on a light box. Finally, Gallit digitises her images and presents them as a giclee print.
Gallit is a keen collaborator, loving participatory projects, workshops and community arts. For example, she collaborated with artist Catherine Grimaldi in 2020 on an epic interactive installation for Lewes Light Festival.
