About Refael Salem

Refael's paintings deal with the connection between the physical and emotional plains, poetical and intimate. Naïve, boyish figures faced with Mother Nature in situations that both emphasizes their beauty and implies on their vulnerability and fragileness. His work is influenced by poetry and literature, fairy tales and youth adventure tales.
