Our Speakers

Arbelle Shtainer (HOLY ERA)

Born in 1993, Arbelle Shtainer, aka HOLY ERA, is an independent artist, as well as the owner and manager of ROM studio, an all-female, multidisciplinary art space in Haifa, Israel. She works in several mediums, such as drawing, murals, animation, tattoos, and more. Inspired by everyday human struggles, politics, the female gaze, nature, and the mundane aspects of life, Arbelle’s work questions the idea of identity and place, and thus examines the view of the self. Arbelle works locally and around the world.
