About Debi Oulu

Hi,  I am a full time artist very involved in the local art scene.  You are welcome to check out my web site at www.DebiOulu.com

I love going to openings.  I get to see the art first and form my own opinions on whether I like it or not.  It is always a surprise – either a “hit” or “miss”.  I like that the openings are in the evenings.   The drinks get me into a party mood. I love walking around with a beer of wine in my hand, and mingling with old and new friends.   I like meeting the artist on the day of his or her opening. There is an excitement in the air that is hard to contain.  during the day, and this is an opportunity to go at night .

I would like to share this excitement with you.

About the Artist

Debi Oulu is an emerging multi-disciplinary artist. While her roots are strongly based in sculpture (clay, bronze, stone, glass and plastics) , her recent works involve video, instillation, photography and performance art. She continues to explore the way in which art can be a dynamic multi directional conversation between people. Oulu brings much honesty and humor to her work. 
Born and raised in the United States, Debi Oulu received her Bachelor of Arts degree in communication from the University of California at San Diego. After traveling alone for over a year in the far east, she moved to Israel. She worked as a 3-D animator, Web Designer, and tourist operator. After the birth of her three children, Oulu continued her art studies, first under the direction of artist Yehezkel Cohen, and then at the Midrasha Art School in Israel. Debi then continued to develop her art under the mentorship of professor of art, Henry Lee Anderson. 
Her work is a constant exploration of art as a form of communication. While exhibiting in galleries and exhibitions, her favorite venues are alternative “non-art” spaces. Bringing art into contact with people in everyday settings such as bus stations, schools, public streets , and night clubs. 
She has exhibited in Israel, Italy, Australia, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Los Vegas, and Canada. for a complete listing of her shows and links, please see below.
