Efrat Merin (b.1989, Israel) is an artist working across multiple mediums, offering a queer retelling of mythical narratives. She holds a particular fascination with origin myths, exploring concepts of primordial chaos, narratives of separation and becoming, and themes such as the performativity of the queer body, the fusion of science and magic, and the environmental crisis as an existential state. Over the past three years, Merin has been developing the sgraffito technique in painting, involving the scratching and removal of parts of the surface to reveal the underlying layer.
