Dita Jacobovitz is an Israeli oil landscape painter. Jacobovitz explores the rural scenes surrounding her home, in her native Israel, activating memories and emotions through intuitively guided gestures and palettes. A member of the Circle Foundation for the Arts and featured in the WE Contemporary Art book in 2021, Art Dubai, and the NY Affordable Art Fair, Jacobovitz has been creating art since she was young, developing her distinctive style over time.

Jacobovitz aims to convey a clean, serene landscape where her viewers can feel at peace. She appreciates nature’s inherent value and hopes to convey it through her work, as she believes our planet is not to be taken for granted. Her paintings evoke memories of our own experiences with nature, of fully immersing ourselves in a new place for the first time.

As we gaze into her scenes, we can almost smell the freshness of the grass on the hills or hear the water splash in the Dead Sea. Jacobovitz’s landscapes have a timeless quality that allows us to fully appreciate nature the way she does. “Art gives you the freedom to create a new, maybe an even better reality and use explicit and implicit messages,” she says.
