ABOUT THIS ISSUE In these days, i believe there is a need of good energy, creativity and calm nights. For everyone. This magazine holds the right to come in peace. No political positions, no government involvements, borders, statements of hatred, defense or using power. We only show the power of creation, the power of humanity in art, by art. There is a quote i love deeply, from one of the most inspiring books i have ever read: I sat day after day in my little room, waiting for inspiration to visit me, trying to invent a pseudonym that would express, in a combination of noble and striking sounds, our dream of artistic achievement, a pen name grand enough to compensate for my own feeling of insecurity and helplessness at the idea of everything my mother expected from me. Romain gary. Promise at dawn (1960) In this issue we exhibit excellent collection of art. Young artists generation along with Known artists in israel in the fields of judaic art, naive art and contemporary art.

A self-taught painter. Until 3 years ago, he had painted in different Eclectic style. Just three years ago, he adopted the naïve style and created more than 250 paintings. The main subject of his painting is the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo and a large part of them deals with the Tel Aviv promenade. «When I saw the French town of Cannes, where thousands of tourists crowded on the promenade, I decided that what›s good for Cannes is better for Tel Aviv». Buberman painting is generally from imagination, sometimes he paints the chosen site but changes the details. His painting is very positive, with rich colors and he consciously ignores the laws of perspective and occurred perception of buildings as well as the laws of light and shadow. If you ask Buberman if he is not tired of painting a lot of houses? Ike will say «not the house only I paint, but i bring my heart to the painting». Ike Buberman presented in an open exhibition in the culture center of Kiryat Ono (2011, in the International Bank on Dizengoff square, Tel Aviv, Jina Gallery in 20122013, in the naïve Art Festival in Katowice, Poland, in 2012, the Guttman Gallery in Berlin, 2013, 2012.

NOGAH SAFER Works that deal with the tension created when taking images and sketches that are designated for the third dimension and turning them into a two-dimensional puzzle of lines and shapes that plays with the viewer´s perception of the created space. The simple action of drawing geometric lines over a maze of abstract forms gives the feel of a very real place that at the same time can never exist/ The lines hint at a defined form, while the actual space is still transparent. Architectural structures are taken apart and built back together in logical ways that don’t make sense/ a sketch for an apartment that isn’t meant to be built is not confined by the need to be a stepping stool for a bigger picture. It has the freedom to take on characteristics of a painting, to be an individual.

ENGINEERING . DESIGN . ART. For the third time of its history, the multidisciplinary art department of shenkar college empties its halls for the graduates’ exhibition. The only 6-years-old department always puts the students as its top priority with an emphasis on the arts and practical aspects, as well as the conceptual and theoretical depths. The graduates presenting their final projects received close monitoring by the department’s professors, and were to specialize in a variety of fields - painting, sculpting, photography, video, drawing and printing - each one according to his own inclinations artistic needs. Each graduated student has built his own world, revolving around his own questions and doubts which concern them; questions and concerns that provide the raw material from which their artistic activity is made of. Yet the final results are not to remain at the student’s private sphere, but in public domain - where the artistic discourse takes place. The final exhibition constitutes the first entry into the public sphere. The projects which take place in the showcase only expose a small piece of the graduates’ did during their curriculum. After four years of hard and uncompromising work they are ready to make difficult decisions, deciding what is proper, and more importantly - to decide on what to give up. That´s the hardest part of artwork, from now on and ahead - knowing how to give up sometimes. -Multidisciplinary seminar instructors of the fourth year, curriculum and final exhibition curators.
