Yair Avi

Born 1957, Lives and works in Tel Aviv
As a collage and assemblage artist, Avi Yair is concerned with mixing up worlds and trying to break through the constrained frame of the working surface. Practicing different distances of sight- from the biographic point of view, to social forms of pop culture, to theoretical notions of the world; He seems to go back and forth, from the personal to the generic, from the concrete to the intangible, in a playful manner full of irony and humor.
