It is said that some people are born to be artists, and the truth of this statement is epitomized by Myriam Wulf. From her earliest years, Myriam was immersed in art, as she worked beside and learned from her artist father. A professional artist, he became an inspiration, mentor, teacher, and Myriam’s artsy friend throughout his life. In addition to her father, Myriam was taught by his studio staff, private tutors, illustrators, the sculptor Oscar Capristo, Victor Vasarely, and classroom teachers from primary grades through university. She was constantly surrounded by art, artists, culture, and the study of the Masters.
Myriam has worked in an extremely wide variety of mediums and disciplines, including woodworking, furniture design, ceramics, illustrations, printmaking, commercial signs, commercial art, animation, storytelling, paper engineering, photography, filmmaking, textiles, scientific illustrations, fiber arts, books, assessment test illustrations, theater props, disguises, digital art, jewelry, and even cardboard furniture. She says that her work always included an aspect of mixed media, long before she had a name for it! Her ability to create fantastical worlds of impeccable art combined with storytelling continues to grow, amaze and inspire those around her.
Growing up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Myriam was immersed in the language and culture of South America. She, with family and friends traveled to many other culturally rich countries, including other areas of Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, Italy, Greece, and Spain. Finding inspiration wherever she is, from the simplest things such as an item out of place or the grandeur of the sea, Myriam is constantly being inspired.
In addition to a wealth of artwork and education, Myriam is the mother of 5 children (4 boys and 1 girl) and has two dogs who keep her company. Always adventurous, she moved to Israel at the age of 49, settling in Kiryat Yam City, which is near the Mediterranean Sea. As Myriam says, ‘Life here is quiet and meaningful.’ Myriam speaks Spanish, Hebrew, and English.
Among her many accomplishments, Myriam submitted her work to a special jury panel, resulting in her being designated an Artist For Israel. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and special shows.
Unafraid to try something new, she has launched a YouTube channel where her talent for art, storytelling, and joyful approach to life can be enjoyed. Myriam’s stencil designs are sold exclusively by PM artist Studio.
Myriam’s art philosophy can be explained by her statement, “Art can cure. Art is a meaningful point of view, a witness, a way for your soul to go out and take a breath. Art is finally my true nature. As an artist, you have your share of responsibility to sustain the flame so that it keeps going.”
