In 2010, I graduated from Shenkar College in Israel, with a bachelor degree in graphic design.
In the past six years, I have been working as a graphic designer, illustrator and as a UI/UX
designer. In parallel to my daily work, I established a working routine in which I create collages,
illustrations, and graffiti works. At first, it was initiated in order to have a personally derived
work, but after a while, that routine took more of my time, I deepened my research and gave
it more significance.
In these artworks, I create a fantasy world, inspired by American pop themes such as tattoos,
fashion magazines, and graphic art. I use the shape and the content in order to blur borders
between sweet images to horrific dream-like scenarios and create surrealistic sub-worlds,
which are humorous and intellectual, make a lot of sense and at the same time not at all.
I find the abyss and dark sides of human beings fascinating, especially those that seem all right
from the outside. Those, which are hidden with a fake and sweet smile. Therefor I combine
humans and animals and make images that appear cute and inviting (such a woman mixed with
a bear head or a deer hitchhiking), yet a more careful look would show the woman has three
pairs of eyes and the deer is stuck in nowhere. Those mixtures evoke questions about gender,
sexuality, repulsiveness and culture.
