Lital Gold emailed in to the blog a couple of weeks ago asking us to check out her artwork. I fell in love the minute I clicked the link, and just knew we had to do a post on her. She is mainly a textile designer for clothing and home goods, but she also does phenomenal ink, pen, and water color portraits full of imagination. I began researching her a bit, and was intrigued to find out that she is from Israel. I grew up around a lot of Israelis and find them to be really interesting people. This sparked me to want to know more about who she is, so I asked if she would be down to answer some questions for the blog. She said yes! So enjoy an interview and some of my favorite pieces from this captivating young woman. Once you’re done, check out her blog – she does really cool things with displaying her art and giving peeks into what she’s working on.

Do you have a usual process/routine for working on your pieces?

I usually have a vision of what I want to make. I start from an image that makes me smile and interests me, and just let it be whatever it wants. Sometimes I have something on my mind but the abstraction process takes me to a different place, which is also great because I get to see more than one option of what it could be.

How did growing up in Israel influence you?

Growing up in Israel is not always simple, but I wouldn’t replace it. Israel is a small, colorful country, with beautiful nature and mixed cultures, many kinds of ethnic groups and religions.  I think this “mix” and ethnic world influence me the most.

Where is your favorite city/place and why?

My favorite place (so far) is “Pushkar”, a small village in Rajasthan, India. I’ve visited there 4 times and I love everything about this place!! I really get inspired by the gypsy culture the colors and silence of the desert. The local people are lovely and the food…oh the food.

What inspires you most?

Fashion, colors, street art and music.

How would you describe your own personal clothing style?

All printed!

If you were another animal which would you be?

A hedgehog and only because it’s cute!

What is the best thing to eat for breakfast?

CRUNCH cereal!

Who are your favorite all-time artists?

Tim Burton oh yeah!

If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?

That’s a really tough question…If dead it would be Gustav Klimt or Alexander McQueen. You choose.

What is your song of the week?

I’m the Walrus – The Beatles kukukuchu

If you could travel anywhere in space and time, where would you go?

I would definitely go to the moon.

When you’re not making art, you’re…?

Doing nothing?!

What is your dream for your artwork? What does success look like for you?

Every time I see my art works take shape – if it’s on a dress, a carpet or a wall paper it makes me happy, it’s like magic to me. For me, success is when my design is communicative enough to get into people’s houses or cover their body. That’s what makes my work relevant.

What do you think is unique about your style of art?

Textile is unique. It has an inner bit, it’s repetitive and traditional, a never-ending story. I love it and try to preserve it in my works by giving it a new aesthetic and interpretation. I bring myself and my own language and touch.  All of my art works are handmade, and each work tells a different story. That is what makes them communicative.

What does free mean to you?

To feel no fear at all

In America, we like to express our bodies..so much of our fashions are designed in ways to change, to express, to shape, to reshape, to cover, or alter our bodies. But, her being from Israel she doesn’t see that and that’s really intersting that she would think about things like faces, flowers, and prints..

These ink and watercolor paintings are almost otherworldly…There is something that is untouchable about them. They aren’t perfect, but in their own right they are. I am going to bookmark her site…perfect inspiration for summer!
