On 9th August 2019 we saw the release of 2 new Yuvi prints in the latest collection Street View. Featuring Urban Jungle II Hand Embellished Canvas print £538.00 & Urban Jungle I Hand Embellished Canvas print £538.00 .
Yuvi’s work, which is described by himself as graffiti inspired pop art, has been showcased and admired in places as diverse as New York and New Delhi. The animation and vibrancy in each of his pieces takes us straight back to the streets which inspired them. Yuvi states “The street as the graffiti artist’s main source of inspiration makes the work accessible, authentic, and relatable.” Which is agreed with by the many who love his work.
Using humour and defiance, he gives an artistic voice to his world view, exploring issues which he cares passionately about, from social criticism to iconic homage. He uses many interesting subjects in his work to convey his ideas and views including: Superheroes, scientists, artists, movie stars and animals.
Yuvi grew up in a hipster neighbourhood in the 1970’s known as Florentine in Tel Aviv. This has since become the heart of the city’s graffiti scene. He grew up surrounded by graffiti, music, politics and the social agenda of a city with a hugely cosmopolitan character. All these influences combined to ignite his imagination and direct his creative and tempestuous personality into highly expressive and vibrant artistic statements.
His artwork matured after finishing his studies in Graphic Design and taking time to travel Europe and live in the United States. These experiences exposed him to more diverse cultures, aesthetic styles and artistic forms of expression. This, in turn, allowed him to take his art to new and exciting levels. American icons such as Andy Warhol and the elusive and controversial British artist Banksy became inspirations for his work.
Traditional techniques are combined with digital technology to complete his artwork. Yuvi explores a range of mediums with both setting and character being formed from a variety of different materials such as: paint, printed paper cuttings, layers of old newspaper clippings, sketches, silk screen prints, various glues, inks, spray paints, sand, glass fragments and more. He often uses his bare hands which creates an intense physical relationship with every piece he makes and helps to show his dedication, passion, and love for his work. The finished composition is intensely tactile and the audience are invited to feel the work with their own hands instead of merely observing.
