Nurit Avesar is a mixed media artist and a painter. Her process-based images are combinations of the faded, ghostly images of the initial layer that blend and merge with the bolder, brighter final layers. She states, “History is not linear; it is interwoven with present and future. I have always been fascinated by the effect of history on the present, and the way current events and decisions determine the future.”


Avesar’s recent solo exhibitions include Beyond Baroque, Los Angeles, CA (2019), Monica Film Center, Santa Monica, CA (2018) and Neutra Institute Museum, Silver Lake, CA (2016). Group exhibitions include Studio Channel Island, Camarillo, CA (2023); Keystone Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2017); Carnegie Museum in Oxnard, CA (2016); CSU Dominguez Hills California State University Dominguez Hills (2016) and Brand Library Art Gallery, Glendale, CA (2015).


She recently curated the exhibition “First Response” at Keystone Gallery in Los Angeles. Avesar was the 2010 recipient of the Cal State University Dean Art Purchase Award. Avesar is a member of the Kipaipai Fellows directed by Andi Campognone, director of the Lancaster Museum of Art and History.  She was the National Women’s Caucus for the Arts (NWCA) July Featured Artist, and in her work was featured in Artillery Magazine, November-December 2022.  She is represented by Janssen Artspace in Palm Springs, CA.


Nurit Avesar was born and raised in Israel. She moved to Los Angeles in her early 20’s. During her early career she worked as a graphic designer and an illustrator. In 2010, she completed a MA in Studio Art at California State University, Northridge. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
