Méïr Srebriansky

Méïr Srebriansky (b. 1976 in Strasbourg, France) is an abstract painter based in New York City. He earned his BFA from École supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. In France, influenced by French and American New Wave cinema, he painted realism. Working with blurred photographs in his series "Wasted Pictures" led the artist to explore abstraction. Shapes often derived from his figurative drawings, and colors, guide his labor-intensive process driven by popular culture, science, and the depths of his own imagination. Moving beyond oil and acrylic, the artist incorporates cast resin, wood, and debris in his practice; he both harnesses and explores the physicality of painting. Srebriansky has participated in residencies at Vermont Studio Center and Con Artist NYC. He has exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Asia at the Belskie Museum, NY; European Parliament, Strasbourg; The Boring Gallery at 106 Rivington, NYC; HK Walls, Hong Kong; and one of his murals is permanently on view at The Mes Hall, NY.
