Between Calm and Chaos
The work of illustrator Tomer Hanuka demonstrates one thing: the deliberate storyteller and the insightful artist that he is. He constantly explores the limits of single-image storytelling – changing perspective, finding the personal in the icon. Digging the bone out of the fat. His work is fluid – the figures he builds are languorous, curved, fragile. It’s all part of the narrative he builds, of his search for calm in the chaos.
Hanuka was born in Israel in 1974 and now lives and works in New York. In addition to illustration, he is also an award-winning draftsman. His works include “The Placebo Man”, “Meathaus S.O.S.” and the cover illustration for Vertigo’s “The Un-Men”. He finds an incredibly calm balance between chaos and peace. Hanuka is a craftsman who masters his tools both mentally and physically. He can transform a moment into a frightening, dangerous, humorous or erotic moment.
