My paintings are an exploration and expression of my personal emotions, interpersonal relationships and recollections of childhood; the human condition; and also influenced by my travel experiences and their influences on my senses as well as inspiration drawn from current fashion and pop culture.

My aim is to represent my world and express, with my chosen media the emotional moments, quirky twists and often humorous encounters of life.

    I love this artwork. It brought me back to the fun time and memories of being in the sea in summer, spending time w my GF. I love the mood and simplicity of the image. Excellent colors and feel.

    OH Eyal – I am so glad it brought back fond memories for you – mostly I strive to evoke feelings of fun, happiness and tranquility in my art, you make me feel I achieved this. Thank You!

    This style of heavily cropped image always reminds me of photos where the ex has been cut off the picture. You have the negative space balanced well …next!
