Avner Sher is a prominent and highly successful artist and architect who lives and works in Israel. Sher’s work is rooted in the graffiti and the iconography of the Levant and fuses contemporary art aesthetic while addressing the status of men in the universe. The works are testimony to the darker sides of Sher’s subconscious. Beginning with the conscious desecration of cork and wood boards, Sher damages, scratches, scorches and dirties their surface, finally leaving them outside, exposed to the elements of nature. Allowing him to express his rage and fury, these desecrated surfaces form the base of his art. Then, he slowly and patiently draws out images and writings out of the destruction, creating a new world out of the Chaos.
