I'm an interdisciplinary artist, based in Tel Aviv. I made my first works as autodidactic stone sculptor. During 3 years I had participated stone symposia in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Israel, created monumental sculptures of 3 meters. Than I had my art study in Beit Berl Ha-Midrasha. My new way is based on two kind of interests: I'm attracted by the human relation to the naked body, and the digital and material integration in new media artworks.

The Israeli reality is very turbulent. In my art I react to the reality. It can't be otherwise, because the personal is political and vice versa. My projects dealt with the female gaze at naked men; self portrait in old age; the future of children in Israel, contemporary cultural body painting on clay vases, In PC work I put mosques in Tel Aviv, with cardboard and newspapers I made dynamic installations, with the visitor's participation  -  gesture to old Pompeii, and I paint 3D paintings in virtual reality.
