Gida Laughing Men Print
Gida (born 1988) is a self-taught artist from Haifa, Israel. A favourite of the local underground art and music scenes, Gida is known for his punk aesthetic, fast, free and primordial. Characteristic of a middle eastern artist, there is often a tension between tradition and modernism in both his technique and subject matter.

This series, Bat Galim, (the beachfront neighbourhood where the artist lives) was first created in ink on paper, the paintings then enlarged as silkscreen prints. The series depicts scenes drawn from somewhere between the artist's everyday reality and the effect his surroundings have on his imagination.
