Méïr Srebriansky (b. 1976 in Strasbourg, France) is an abstract painter based in New York City. He earned his BFA from École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. In France, influenced by French and American New Wave cinema, he painted a series called “Wasted Pictures” which were based on blurred film stills. It was then that his paintings started entering the world of abstraction. Moving beyond oil and acrylic, the artist incorporates resin in his painting practice.

Napalm D’Or (Climate Change) (2018-2020) maintains Méïr's whimsical aesthetic but reveals an earnest message. The work is a witness of the symbolic climate change that the south of France (and the entire country) had suffered after the traumas of terror attacks. Its title is a wordplay with Cannes' festival's prestigious prize Palme d'Or and the explosive mixture Napalm.
