Tel Aviv 100 years young

ta-coverFor the centenary of Tel-Aviv, celebrated these day. Yedioth Acharonot published a special supplement written by ten of its’ leading writers. The them was a portrayal and a personal account of the city.

I was invited to accompany their writings with my illustrations. I had five working days from the day I had received the copy until the deadline…. Must say, but I shouldn’t: I have enjoyed myself immensely.

Here are some of the illustrations from the supplement. most of them occupied a whole broadsheet page.

Rothschild (Boulevard) Tel Aviv

rothschild-izhar-cohen

This illustration won me the first place in a competition b Globes, around the theme of the Rothschild boulevard in Tel Aviv. For those of you who are not familiar with this urban phenomena, this boulevard, through the past fifteen years, turned into the most popular artery, meeting place as well as an open air architectural museum for the modern movement in Tel Aviv.

The illustration, depicting the baron Edmond de Rothschild emerging out of a Parisian art nouveau styled metro station, in the middle of the celebrated boulevard bearing his name, seem to have captured peoples mind and imagination.

thank-you

In the way of thanking all those who supported and voted for my piece, attached a snapshot, taken straight from my mind.
