Kunstnere NBeX project

Meydad Eliyahu
Jerusalem Wanderings exhibition in NBeX project 07.10 - 04.11 2018 is the first time that a major body of works from these series of drawings is being exhibited.
The drawings, created always in direct approach in the public space, are both an act of meditative drawing and research of the human nature in the urban landscape. The sites that I chose are mainly central roads that the human movement and different characters that wonder at these spots are fascinate me during the drawing sessions.
Creation of the drawings is intensive and calligraphic in it's nature and only few of the drawings are part of the series in the end of the process. the drawing are very specific from one hand but have their poetic , unconscious presence which is the motivation behind them from the other hand. Even though the observation is dominant as a starting point of each drawing , the movement of the figures in the space brings to the process spontaneous and innovative aspects.
