Born in Tel Aviv in the 1970’s, Yuvi describes himself as a graffiti inspired pop artist saying “The street as the graffiti artist’s main source of inspiration makes the work accessible, authentic and relatable”
Yuvi spent much of his early life in a hipster neighbourhood known as Florentine which is now the heart of the city’s graffiti scene. He grew up surrounded by graffiti, music, politics & social agenda of a city with a hugely cosmopolitan character.
After studying graphic design Yuvi spent some time travelling around Europe and living in the United States. His art combines traditional techniques with digital technology. His characters and their settings are formed from paint, printed paper cuttings, layers of old newspaper clipping, sketches, silkscreens, various glues, inks, spray paints, sand, glass fragments and more. The finished composition is intensely tactile and the spectator is invited to feel the work with their own hands.
