Boaz Sides · UNTAY's Tattoos
My name is Boaz Sides aka UNTAY, I'm visual artist based in Tel Aviv - spreading love globally , graduated (2010) with honors from the department of Visual Communication at the Holon Institute of Technology and I'm mainly active in the alternative Israeli 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, natural environment in which I live in and by expressionism artists such as Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.
My works are like a colorful and grungy ongoing illustrated diary that developed with time, mainly deal with personal experiences that guide me as an artist.
The works are therefore variegated, some autobiographical and others depicting communal experiences.
The majority of my works are figurative, done on the streets and in the studio, combination of classic drawings, illustrations and designs created on a variety of surfaces and mediums.
I work with mixed media: pencils, acrylics, spray paints, watercolors, digital tools and more,
In 2014, I co-found with Ben and Alon (from Dasilva Boards co.) the ‘Prettimess Collective‘ that gather a group of talented alternative and independent Israeli artists, today we have big studio and events space we share together in the south of Tel Aviv in order to promote our ideas and dreams.
