from Optimistic

His favourite hero has always been Peter Pan. His most obvious characteristic, being optimistic, his greatest ambition, to sleep when it’s noisy around. As an artist, his greatest fear is that ideas may stop coming. He is Yuval Robichek. He takes his inspiration straight from the streets and the sea shores which he loves.

Born in Haifa, Israel in 1959, Yuval studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and gives illustration courses at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. His work has been published in the New York Times and Forbes Magazine in the United States, and in all the major newspapers and magazines in Israel. He also mixes his illustrations with photography, á la Marty Cooper, Jean Jullien, and Sean Charmantz, playing with spacial relations or adding plot twists to his coarse black-and-white film. He also DJ’s in various Tel Aviv venues and has appeared in the 2015 famous Israeli comedy Atomic Falafel.
