Collection: Ofer MizraChi


1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

Working at technologies, communication company. And glad to integrate my art in the blockchain & crypto world.

2. Why do you make art?

Art is a necessary need in my life. Art allows me to explore and find new worlds, that I feel and see in my spirit into reality.

3. What inspires you?

To know that there is something new and dreamlike that you can know to feel and see, and to learn a lot from this, art helps me pass this knowledge to everyone.

4. What/who are your influences?

I never thought about it, what accompanied me for hours in my drawing studio was music and a lot of quiet.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

I never thought about that either, but I once had a project whose purpose was to thank the musicians who accompanied me during my artwork, and one of them was Romano Mussolini. On one of my trips in Italy, I did not feel like going to sleep and went out for a little walk in Rome, I went into the club to have a drink, and there was a JAZZ performance by Romano Mussolini. I did not have much understanding of jazz and did not grow up on this music, but the performance was amazing and I really enjoyed it. After the performance I went to Romano and thanked him for the wonderful performance. We talked a bit and I wanted to buy a CD. He took one disk and wrote good luck Ofer, and signed it. He refused to accept payment, despite all my attempts to pay. After years, when I tried to contact him to thank him for letting me know the JAZZ from another way, and since I am more open to the JAZZ it turned out that he had passed away, and that he was the youngest son of Benito Mussolini and I did not know this figure until I looked for him. So if to meet, then to Romano Mussolini just to thank him as an artist to artist.
