Around Shaviv

The place I spent my teenage years was far from being aesthetic paradise. Actually, it was (and stays) a real slams. Municipality has some plans to take it all down and build a regular middle-class neighborhood. But right now, just as 20 years ago, these houses are still here. They are so ugly, that has even some kind of old charm.

Back then, this dispiriting landscape around wasn’t bothering me. I was concentrated on myself my friends and our relationship, fantasy books (reading Hobbit and Lord of the Rings again and again), and drawing comics with little creatures, which my mum still keep in a box on top of her cupboard. Not the creatures, of course, the comics.

Now I like to believe I see the real things as they are. I have to see it, because now I am a responsible grown up. We all have to. But sometimes, especially when I am walking around with my kids I enjoy to look through my personal kaleidoscope. Then I can turn this:

blue spaghetti is home

the blue spaghetti series — framed, home, and waiting patiently for a group exhibition in Design Museum Holon (in November).

More spaghetti. Now also in red :)

I guess, until I get rid of all these spaghetti that occupied my mind, I cannot continue with my other ideas. So I patiently draw one line after another, while watching House M. D.

…sometimes I wonder, who is actually drawing?

blue spaghetti eaters

It took me a while to put in in words, but I think my drawings are kind of book graffiti. So I decided to go farther with this feeling and to mix spray color and old books. There is something uncontrollable (for me) and fun in a spray color, so different from my slow obsessive way of drawing.
