Untay, tattooer-muralist-illustrator, opens our eyes to wonder

About the speaker

Meet visual artist Boaz Sides, aka UNTAY - a tattooer-muralist-illustrator based in Tel Aviv and active in Israel’s alternative art scene.

“I work with many mediums, out of research and curiosity, inspired by music, street art and graffiti, contemporary illustration and design, the grunge scene, the natural environment I live in and by expressionist artists such as Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.

My works are like a colorful ongoing illustrated diary that developed with time and mainly deal with personal experiences that guide me as an artist.

The works are therefore variegated - some are autobiographical and others depict communal experiences. The majority of my works are figurative mixed with abstract and free lines, combination of classic drawings, illustrations and designs created on a variety of surfaces and mediums.

In 2014, I co-founded the ”Prettimess Collective“ with Ben and Alon (from Dasilva Boards co.) that gathers together a group of talented alternative and independent artists. So far we’ve produced and curated more than 20 exhibition and art events with more than 50 artists from Israel and abroad and thousands of visitors from all around the world.

Since 2010 I have exhibited my art, curated, produced and collaborated in dozens of art events and projects in Israel and around Europe.”
