Suly B. Wolff was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She moved to Tel Aviv when she was eighteen, where she received an informal art education from local practitioners.
The shock of arriving in Israel and her difficulty integrating are what inspired Wolff to start painting, and still inform her creative practice today. In her work, Wolff aims to convey two different cultures and the conflicting impressions they have made on her.
She was first drawn to Eucalyptus trees because they, like her, seemed so out of place in Israel. They too were alien and had been imported from another part of the world. Their purpose of decorating and enrich Israeli gardens aesthetically, and her purpose became to interpret them.
Her paintings can be grouped in series of one common subject: jars, birds, landscapes, etc. Tropical trees, in particular Eucalyptuses, have been a major theme, as well as a kind of consolation and encouragement, she says. They represent an ongoing source of inspiration, with endless possibilities.
Her work has been exhibited worldwide.
