Guy Yanai was born 1977 in Haifa, Israel. He currently lives and works in Tel Aviv. He attended Parsons School of Design and the New York Studio School, and received a BFA from Hampshire College, Amherst, MA.
Yanai is known for his pragmatic approach to artistically mirroring life, with each scene or character stripped back to almost pixelated results. Standing back, each piece is blatantly obvious as to what it’s trying to represent, but upon closer inspection, you’ll fully be able to appreciate the simplicity of its make up; accented yet bold brush strokes sitting side by side to form texture, light work, complexion and composition.
