Gabriela Schutz is an Israeli artist based in London since 1999. In her work she is fascinated with the way technology, information, communication and consumerism are increasingly shaping our life and the way we relate to nature.
Gabriela graduated with distinction from the MA Fine Arts course at Central Saint Martins, London, and is the winner of the Cass Art prize 2023.
She graduated in 1996 with a BA degree in Fine Arts from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. During this course she spent a term on an exchange programme at The Slade School of Fine Art, London. In the last 2 years Gabriela has been studying Etching at the Working Men's College in London.
Gabriela has exhibited nationally and internationally in museums such as The Gefferye Museum, London, The Collection, Lincoln, Ein Harod Museum and Petach Tikva Museum, Israel, and in galleries such as the Jerwood Space, Gasworks, Danielle Arnaud Contemporary and Standpoint in London, The Wilson, Cheltenham, Artists Space and The Elizabeth Foundation for The Arts in New York.
Her work has been short-listed for the famous British Jerwood Drawing Prize 3 times as well as twice for the Neo Print Prize. Her work is included in large corporate art collections such as Zoom's, as well as many private collections in Europe, the U.S.A and Israel.
Gabriela was an art teacher at Richmond Adult Community College (RACC) in London for ten years and has also taught at the Natural History Museum London. Currently she is teaching in her own studio in North London.
Gabriela is represented in Israel by Keren Bar-Gil
