Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.
I am a multidisciplinary artist. born and raised in Israel.
I’ve majored in visual communications studies at ‘Minshar for art college’ in Tel Aviv and had a user interface course at ‘Netcraft academy’.
I’ve worked for several years in a branding and advertising office as a graphic designer, later on I started working as a User experience designer in a high-tech firm up until the Covid-19 virus entered our life and forced me to spend the majority of my time at home.
Art has always been a part of my life, I painted in a vast forms and techniques including digital art and illustrations from a very young age, my works presented in five exhibition two of them were my own personal solo exhibitions and for the past two years I’ve officially titled myself as a formal artist and practiced my art on a daily basis.
What inspired you to become an artist?
The beginning of Corona time made me feel like my world collapsed, I’ve been forced to quit my job and I’ve gone through a divorce after 15 years of marriage, those events took a toll of my mental and emotional balance but thankfully drawing and creating helped me to cope with this difficult period of time and I’ve notice I reflect my emotions through my artworks.
People started to connect to my style and my art sales grew.
What is your speciality?
I’m practicing a wide spectrum of art forms such as: drawing, street art, illustrations, sketching, calligraphy, photography, art design and music, but drawing is my main type of art and it gets the most of my attention.
Where do you take your inspiration from? Are you pursuing any themes?
I draw my inspiration out of my surroundings and my daily life events, I photograph and document them and then go back to them trying to pass them on as an art form, I create my memories and experiences from nature’s oppositions, the colours and textures I’ve come across trying to integrate them in my work.
Do you take on commissions and create bespoke designs?
Of course! This is a great form of meeting new people and hear their interesting stories.
Which project have you enjoyed working on the most so far?
The past year I’ve created a street art project called #pashutlev, which translates into simply heart in Hebrew, in which I scatter sketches of hearts all over the city streets taking their pictures and upload them onto an Instagram page I’ve made specifically for this project.
What do you want to achieve with your work and what are your wishes for the future?
I would like to preserve my passion of creation, my willing to explore and expand my boundaries of creativity and learn how it teaches me to be calm and patient.
I wish for myself to be able to show my art in many more places as possible and inspire many people as possible.
Where can we find your work?
