What is Art for you?
Self expression, communication, and beauty. An extension of one's inner world - be it of the artist herself or the person loving a specific artwork. Art carries the power to create change - for moments or prolonged periods of time - in our inner and outer worlds.
What is chocolate to you?
a delightful vehicle for making connections. The creator of bloom, which is the visual, awe-inspiring manifestation of the movement of particles. It is also what I make a living from :)
What inspires you, and this piece in particular?
The expressive human body. Relationships. Nature. Style. Hairstyles. Emotions. This particular piece was created in 2005 for the cover of "Top 50 Cafes in Tel Aviv". Originally, the characters had cigarettes between their fingers and the newspaper the guy is reading was a local one (in Hebrew).
