About the speaker

Oren Fischer is a Tel Aviv based artist best known for his drawings, videos, and sculptures. In recent years he has embraced a child-like art style, creating his own language which incorporates image and text with naive typography.

Fischer draws in the Tel Aviv streets in his unique free style, and with this he raises socio-political issues.

Recent exhibitions include: Self Portrait As A Self Portrait, at the Rosenfeld gallery; a solo show at Janco Dada Museum; Fresh Paint - where he won the Sotherby’s “Hammer” prize; and a new book of illustrations and a solo exhibition devoted entirely to cultural discourse and artist creation about cancer. Additionally he has initiated an art project in abandoned army bases and he collaborates with musicians in Tel Aviv, designing album covers and art directing the video clips for Red Axes and Ryskinder among others.

He is also the founder and curator of the Red House, a cultural and art community center in the Shapira neighborhood and Meshuna Gallery, an art gallery-cum-cultural space.
