Biography

Life Events

Mali Darvish was born in Israel in 1969 and lives with her family in Ramat Gan.

As a child, Mali experienced abandonment by her father, with all the repercussions of that event during her early childhood and later stages in life. She remembers how she would try to connect to the woman she would one day become – whom she conjured up to encourage herself – a sort of connection to bold womanhood that would allow her to face difficulties as challenges.

As the years passed, Mali became a social activist in her city, served as the chairperson of the Parents’ Association and is active at both the municipal and national levels in the areas of education and health.

In recent years, Mali has begun painting as well as writing on topics mainly relating to gender and femininity.

In the process of painting, Mali senses a bond with her inner child. The process of painting that she experiences is a sort of meditation.

Mali gazes at her canvas like a clouds watcher, and inevitably she sees a figure that she then paints, without first sketching it out or copying an outside subject. The female subjects of Mali’s paintings are expressive and embody a riddle, as though they are hiding something within themselves and provoking within the viewer an inner dialogue.

Mali attended several exhibitions, At Tel Aviv Cinematheque, N.D.gallery and Boker Art Gallery.
