ORGANIC APPROACH BY KLONE

by Ariadna Zierold

Klone currently lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel. Influenced by his childhood emigration from the Ukraine to Israel, Klone’s initial practice of tagging and graffiti were personal challenges to themes of diaspora. This urban tradition allowed him to take ownership of his surrounding and localize an often hostile and alienating environment, making his foreign settings, more familiar.

Using characters, symbols, and regional iconography Klone’s work borrows from existing linguistic traditions in hope of providing a bridge to communicate. This organic approach appeals in its attempt at universality without erasure, without requiring a blank slate mentality. Each installation and drawing, attempts to create an environment that will connect with the observers primal feeling, placing him or her as part of the setting and context of the work.
