Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl started a decade ago when, as a young father, I was trying to prepare myself for this new role in life. I was listening to dozens of recorded (with consent) conversations between therapists and clients provided to me by a therapist friend, trying to understand the roots of young people personal problems. 

 

While listening  I found myself drawing doodles on scrap paper or the edge of a magazine. After a while the drawings took the shape of faceless figures in different social interaction.

 

All looking for a way to keep their personal voice while belonging to a group, to society. A year later I was drawing images of my two daughters Mika And Zoe on different locations in the streets of Tel Aviv. Mostly were homeless people were living. I noticed that passers by would give more attention to those homeless people when the drawing was there. By drawing my daughters images in this contexts I felt I was bringing these people into my own family.

 

In the last few years “Graffiti Girl” is my answer to today’s digital age. Where we don’t know what is fake and what is true. By Illustrating little moments in our lives in a minimalist, direct, clear, humorous, sensitive, and naive way, “Graffiti Girl” drawings, sculptures and sight specific public installations, evoke a full range of basic emotions. And help the viewer to reconnect to simple human qualities.
