Bio

Iris Lavy has experimented with different artistic disciplines from childhood; visual art, drama, music and dance.

Iris is currently dividing her artistic explorations between painting on large canvases, and making sculptural and installations from post consumer, recycled materials, in which she also combines photography and collage.

Iris has won awards and exhibited her art in solo and group shows in galleries, alternative spaces, art fairs, such as Gallery Gaia in DUMBO, NY (Disposition, solo show, 2015); Irondale Theater Gallery in Fort Green, Brooklyn (Journey, solo show, 2016) and MoMA PS1 (Art Amnesty, group show, 2015)
Iris's art has been collected and sold to private collectors, interior designers and corporations around the world, through galleries.

She currently lives and works in New York City.
