Bold colors and simple shapes make up these large and impressive paintings by the Israel-born and US-raised artist Guy Yanai. Currently living and working in Tel Aviv, Yanai’s paintings are often still lifes with a strong graphical sensibility. For me, it’s his paintings of plants that I love the most. His brash use of color and his flat and direct approach to the subject matter works perfectly and his paintings are as playful as they are striking.
Recently Guy collaborated with Band of Outsiders on their SS14 resort collection and the resulting work looks fantastic. If you’re inspiring to look great this spring you couldn’t go to far wrong in checking out their excellent collaboration.
Yanai seems to have a near-endless supply of imagination and productivity and his site is crammed with details of upcoming exhibitions and group shows. You can find out more details (and see plenty more work) by heading over to his Tumblr here.
