Méïr Srebriansky (b. 1976 in Strasbourg, France) is an abstract painter based in New York City. He earned his BFA from École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. In France, influenced by French and American New Wave cinema, he painted realism. Srebriansky’s love for cinematography drove him to paint a series he called “Wasted Pictures” which were based on depictions of blurred photographs. It was then that his paintings started entering the world of abstraction. Now reoccurring shapes, often derived from his figurative drawings, and colors, guide his labor-intensive process driven by popular culture, science, and the depths of his own imagination. Moving beyond oil and acrylic, the artist also incorporates cast resin, wood, and debris in his practice. Srebriansky has participated in residencies at Vermont Studio Center and Con Artist NYC. He has exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Asia at the Belskie Museum, Closter; European Parliament, Strasbourg; East End Culture Club, Southhampton; HK Walls, Hong Kong; and one of his murals is permanently on view at The Mes Hall, NYC. Srebriansky continues to actively make work out of his studio at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City.
