Dear friends, curators and fellow artists,
I am glad to share with you some exciting news regarding my current and upcoming exhibitions this September. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, feel free to have a glance. In addition, I would like to share with you the wonderful news that my work ‘Seeds’ has entered the Israel Museum’s collection.

As part of a group exhibition ‘Urban Touch’ at the Kunsthalle Faust, I will exhibit my latest work ‘Homecoming Artist (Dresden)’ which is a takeoff on my original work ‘Homecoming Artist’ from 2007. As in ‘Homecoming Artist’, also in this work I am driving through the streets of a town- Dresden. Like in the first work, the drive demonstrates the gap between the art scene to the common citizen.
