Zoya Cherkassky-Nnadi



Born in the former USSR, Zoya Cherkassky-Nnadi now lives and works in Tel Aviv. Cherkassky's recent drawings are characterized by reducing her political caricatures to a minimum, along with the abandoning of her typical sarcastic tone that so frequently accompanied her previous works. Despite this, Cherkassky's works are not free of a political statement but rather have taken a more sophisticated and mature approach and are now more subtle, replacing her "in-your-face" effect. 

Cherkassky– Nnadi is also a co- founder of the “New Barbizon”, a group of artists, all formerly from the former USSR who left the studio and its mediation and in the tradition of the first school, depict life by a direct encounter, thus coming back to the realities of their surrounding in a new and fascinating way.
