Biblical Art Gallery worth visiting in Tel Aviv

While interesting art collections are found all over the world, the only international collection of navie artists in the world is found in Tel Aviv, at the GINA  (Gallery of International Naive Art). Naive art is characterized by a refreshing innocence and the charming use of bright colors, child-like perspective and idiosyncratic scale.  It portrays simple, easily-understandable and often idealized scenes of everyday life.  The naive artist -- often self taught - treats us to a uniquely literal, yet extremely personal and coherent, vision of the world that was, is or should be..


Each artist draws its subjects from the world around him, his memories of childhood or a vision of an idyllic future.  Many of the artists were raised on the Bible and the stories told to children which is why Bible-themes are so prevalent amongst the work.


The collection presents artists from around the world and therefore, while South America and Brazil learn the same Bible stories as  artists of Spain, France or Croatia, each theme iwhile universal is uniquely presented influenced by the culture of its originating country.  It is difficult not to be moved by these Biblical interpretations.
