I’m based in Jerusalem and Paris, I revolve my approach around digital art, virtual communications and augmented reality.

My work covers different angles of the video and photography mediums and goes from digital art, augmented reality art and 3D animation to single-channel cinematographic pieces.

I’m researching new creative possibilities that are enabled by technological developments, focusing on the way they affect on how we create and communicate online, with a gaze towards the metaverse.

In the recent years, I’ve made an increasing use of these mediums, experimenting with different methods to bring them into the fields of modern art and fashion.

I graduated with honors from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, with a B.F.A in 2018. My graduation film and other projects took part in exhibitions, galleries, film festivals and museums around the world – New York Times Square, CICA Museum of South Korea, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, CADAF Digital Art Festival, MMMAD Festival, Arles Festival and more.

I’ve also collaborated with brands such as Balenciaga, Esquire, Benefit Cosmetics, Michael Kors, Savoir Flair, Dazed Beauty, The Claw Models, Eva Engines, Mercedes Benz. And artists Abdulla Elmaz, Adi Karni Vagt, Jora Frantzis and more. Taking a closer look at gaming culture, aiming to combine gaming with photography, fashion and digital art. Bringing this practice forward to the eyes of luxury brands, and showing the potential that this combination between these worlds can have.
