My name is Anat - I am a Houston based self-taught artist, born and raised in the State of Israel. Until five years ago, I was working in administrative positions in numerous jobs. The career change came as a surprise, when facing a life changing decision to try working in the art field. In 2009, I did my first large scale project, four murals on the Galveston Causeway, each 90 feet long. Since then, I completed more than a five hundred larger and smaller scale murals on highways, commercial spots, schools, churches, and in private homes throughout the Houston area and beyond, designed dozens of websites and graphic material items and participated in international and national street art and street painting festivals.
My first taste of street painting, or pastel work on pavement and asphalt, was in 2009 when I presented myself to be a local radio station's artist for Houston's Via Colori 2009. It was my first ever attempt. It is different than working with acrylics but in a fun way. Since then, I participated in the collaborative street painting project in Via Colori 2010, and was chosen to be the festival's featured artist for 2011 and 2013.
