Koren Shadmi has a skill for combining engaging comic illustrations with highly critical statements. His latest collection throws the spotlight on human interaction and the interference of technology. The works are thought provoking and curious. Shadmi combines bizarre compositional tactics with normative, routine scenes to create a relatable fantasy. A particularly memorable piece features a suave man sitting on a couch, eating sushi with delicate hands. The subject is watching television, starring directly at a caveman reflection of himself. The impact is immediate and humorous.
