    Thoughts on this artwork? I don't find it particularly great, and I reject the notion that he is the first Israeli artist to deal with the subject matter, but I appreciate his energy and what he is trying to accomplish. Thoughts?

    far from ground breaking, his work looks very mediocre. and as for the subject matter, it is dealt with at par with an averagely talented high school student. some realism in one of them, but nothing special, def. nothing that translates emotion. very average work...

    ps, what is he trying to accomplish? in a place like tel aviv, i think there is much more to say than bullshit like: "Perez wishes to present the lives of the residents of the city and the great love in their hearts".

    sorry, i really find his work silly.

    One might say the same thing about the work of Keith Haring, but I wouldn't.

    keith haring was actually very political. he had a lot to say. he also created very strong imagery that was unique at the time.

    and on the subject of sexuality, some of his work was extremely expressive. i would not compare this work to his.

    This one should be titled "Haters Gonna Hate."

    I love that they're holding hands and filled with such lightness that they're floating.

    It really seems like these two found what they always wanted, which they wore on their shirts, and all that they needed, which is to be joined together in bliss.

    I like the art, and it is certainly more than I could create. I disagree that its "mediocre". I just don't think its ground breaking...
