The 2021 Featured Artist Winner Yoram Gal is from Tel-Aviv, Israel and has been a juried artist at The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival since 2006. He started painting at the age of 12 and exhibiting his work at 13. An all-around artist, Yoram writes plays for stage and screen, paints, directs, and produces shows in his traveling theatre.
