While studying architecture at the Bezalel Academy of Fine Art and Design in Jerusalem, I struggled with the academic and commercial models prevalent in many the Art institute and Art industry.
I realized that the traditional Artist’s and Art public’s attitude had shifted to an appreciation for shock value and sensationalism as the motivating force behind the act of creation.
The resulting atmosphere celebrated a competitive environment where Artists were not encouraged to create Art consistent with an authentic human experience for fear of appearing commonplace or too familiar.
Art has become a symptom of an escapist culture.

Individual Collective is the antidote.
