Liorah Tchiprout was born in 1992 in London. She is a printmaker and puppet maker. The characters she makes are how she deals with things she finds intimidating or confusing – shrinking them down whilst also giving them due reverence. They rattle around mediums – born in paintings, growing into puppets with fabric and human hair and, in turn, as models for works on paper. They are based on real people, characters from books, concepts and her imagination. Her work is informed by a sustained practice of drawing from life, especially on the London underground.
She studied Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Brighton, UK, with a semester at Bezalel, Jerusalem. In 2018 she will begin her Printmaking MA at Camberwell.
