About

Tel Aviv artist Guy Yanai’s paintings capture a visual culture somewhere between modern art and Tumblr, and take form in thick, paradise-hued brushtrokes. The works live where past and present meet, carving contemporary imagery into the historical timeline of painting, yet at first glance appearing uncannily evocative of 8-bit computer graphics of the 80s. Yanai’s self-conscious relation with history intersects with the artist’s personal feelings of drifting, dispersion and alienation in the world. Thus the assertive, bold edges Yanai traces onto the canvas act as formal cartography - as a gesture towards anchoring the image.
