Maya Cohen Levy

Maya Cohen Levy – a sculptor and painter from Israel. Born in 1955 in Tel Aviv, Maya studied philosophy first before studying art in Israel in the 1970s. She has also studied in Japan and China and has been one of the few female artists successfully able to juggle an art career with motherhood. Still living in Tel Aviv, Cohen Levy addresses the issue of Israeli-Palestinian relations in her art.
