Ofri Shmul is a first-year art and business economics student. She has known she would be an artist since she was a little girl and would spend hours in the basement making her “creations".
Starting at UCLA as a painter, Shmul has expanded her preferred mediums to including sculpture and ceramics. However, she stills prefers to work in painting and photography.
Shmul’s most recent creation was a sculpture depicting the link between ADHD and technology. She researched technology and its connections to the brain and how those connections link to ADHD.
Shmul used black wire for this piece in order to represent the nervous system in the body and create a doodle-like effect. This piece is also her favorite she has created.
Despite having a heavy course load and an active social life, Shmul manages to still spend a minimum of 10 hours in the studio outside of regular class hours.
Shmul does not have a specific process when making her pieces. She stated that she “just waits for [things] to come to her,” then proceeds to work off of those bursts of inspiration.
