Yonatan Popper‘s images manage to enclose messages and meanings with a strong impact.
Yonatan is an illustrator and animator from Israel, where he studied at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, which has seen his works published on heads such as The New Yorker, San Antonio Magazine, The Guardian, Blazer magazine, Globes magazine, Liberal-magazine, and many others. His illustrations have the power to enclose an ironic side, very subtle but essential, and a more satirical, edgy.
Yonatan Popper takes his cue from everything around him, from comics, silkscreens, futuristic posters, but also from what he sees on the internet, from films and TV series, from pop culture and events related to current affairs. Once he has understood what to illustrate and how to illustrate it, the Israeli artist begins to work with paper and pencil; only later does he scan the sketch and complete the work digitally. It is at this stage that he calibrates the colors, using them to highlight the main subject so that he can immediately capture our attention.
