Simtat Beit HaBad 3, Tel Aviv
I started painting early, I do not remember age, but discovering as a child distant drawings and scribbles on the walls of my parents’ workshop. Then, I was drawing for hours on my parents’ sewing machines while they worked. I did it for pleasure and because my weak health did not allow me to run around with other children. Then they sent me to a teacher and I met the oil painting, the models, and the museums and galleries, as well as the concerts, since it was part of my teacher’s demands. As a teenager I embarked on painting as an adventure, which led me to discover other active artists, to live together in the San Telmo Fair.

We invite artists to invent, exhibit, and thrive, explore new mediums and create a dialogue. For this reason, we aim at showcasing the work of artists, free of constraints in mediums and techniques. After over one year of activity in Mendeli Street Tel Aviv, we have freed ourselves from physical spacial constraints, and have become a mobile initiative, developing new projects in venues both in Israel and abroad.

In Arabic, Baluchi, Persian and Turkish the term Idris is derived from the root درس which is associated with the process of education. As specified in the Encyclopedia of Islam the name originated from the ancient […]
