Lela Migirov is a Professor of Otolaryngology, and a world renowned surgeon currently living and working as an artist-painter and photographer both in Paris and Tel Aviv.
“Lela began studying art in 2011 and once finding her artistic voice has been showing her works in several solo and group exhibitions in Israel, China and France. She has published 3 well received Artist Books and is dedicated to her creative pursuit, with the depth of intellect, discipline and passion, few people are blessed with.
The paintings inspired by Frantz Kafka are centered in Lela’s ability to empathize, explore and internalize the depths and humanity of Kafka’s always challenging moral dilemmas. Her paintings are expressions of herself, striking images that are reflections of Kafka themes, rather than illustrations. Her talent lies in her freedom to think, and her ability to express herself without mannerism or guises. She is imbued with passion, honesty and love of mankind. She brings to her work a poetic innocence that is genuine and compassionate.
Lovers and angels, are part of another series of works in this exhibition, while still reflective of Kafka, we encounter a more personal and intimate body of works. The layers of textures and minimalistic palette remain, as does her intuitive sense of composition. Lela Migirov has mastered one of the most difficult medical sciences, and with the same totality she is mastering her creative talent, challenging her mind and soul, committed and inspired, she is an artist.”
