  2. 2. Biography Sarai Nissan was born in 1996 in Denver, Colorado to two Israeli immigrants who fell out of love five years after she and her twin sister were born. Coming from a creative home, raised on the art of Andy Warhol and the music of Bob Dylan, her love for art and music culminated. At the age of 15 she was whisked away to live in Israel for a year, there she traveled around Europe and found herself in a constant state of wanderlust after her return to the states. She works with many medias mostly focusing on the aesthetics of oil paints. She currently resides in Boulder, Colorado and is a Senior at Boulder High School.

  31. 31. Artists Statement Each and every single piece contains a fragment of myself, every piece I create is created in an effort to unearth myself. My work explores my own morbid curiosities, addressing the images that some may find odd, obscure or even grotesque. My infatuation with such oddities manifests itself with in my work. Always teetering on the edge of death or darkness my artwork explores this contrasting balance; light and dark, life and death, male and female etc. My pieces have become vessels to the darkest and brightest thoughts from the dregs of my mind. They are ostensibly foreboding creatures, cultivated and conceived through the inspiration of the occult, metaphysics entwined with everyday life.
