Ora Bialik is an expressive colorist artist.  She works with a variety of media, including traditional oil painting, abstract acrylic, watercolor, ink, print making, and beading. Ora developed a unique style, in which she paints on canvas, cuts the canvas, and weaves it back. This creates a three dimensional impression of colors and forms, in a two dimensional world.

Ora had solo exhibitions in Hadas Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Martins Run, Media, PA, and Stonegates Art gallery, DL. She participated in group exhibitions at DaVinci Art Alliance, Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial, The Old City Jewish Art Center, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA), Philadelphia Community College and Haifa University, Israel. She has won awards in painting and photography.

Ora is an Israeli born artist. Graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA), Certificate Program; Received an Associate degree in Art, with high honors from the Community College of Philadelphia, and holds a Ph.D. degree in mathematics and statistics, from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Cleveland, OH.
