Yuval Gold known as Yuvi describes himself as a graffiti inspired pop artist saying: “The street as the graffiti artist’s main source of inspiration makes the work accessible, authentic, and relatable.” The animation and vibrancy in each work takes us straight back to the streets which inspired them, and has won him exhibitions and admirers in places as diverse in the world. Today, his works are valued and represented in galleries around the world in places as UK, USA, Milan, Hong Kong and Dubai.
Superheroes, scientists, artists, movie stars, animals – all these and many more subjects make appearances in his work. Using humor and defiance, he gives an artistic voice to his world view, exploring issues which he cares passionately about, from social criticism to iconic homage, in his deeply personal language.
Born in Tel Aviv- ‘the other city that never sleeps’ - In the late 70s, Yuvi spent much of his early life in a hipster neighborhood known as Florentine which is now the heart of the city’s graffiti scene. Yuvi 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.
Yuvi creates his own one of a kind, fun, humorous and exciting art pieces, and enjoys bringing his expression of freedom and love into the homes of all those who buy his art.
