A London artist on a mission to spread love & joy.
With bursting colors, Yoni Alter navigates a balance between the artistic and the graphic, between the figurative and the abstract and between form and space.
Alter studied art and design in Jerusalem before completing his MA in Graphic Design at the University of the Arts London and has since called London ‘home’. The city functions as an endless source of inspiration to the artists - his debut London show at Kemistry Gallery was entirely inspired by the city’s urban landscapes and architecture. Alter’s vibrant, abstracted depictions of London architecture draw the viewer in and seem to sum up the creative vibe of this amazing city.
However, the artist does not limit himself to art to be hung on a wall, he also created the art for the branding for London’s TV Channel and is behind a best-selling merchandise range for Tate. His work can furthermore be seen covering double decker buses, on a 25m long banner in Shoreditch, and as part of the acclaimed "100 Years of Graphic Design" exhibition. Alter's fashion collaborations include a collection with no less than Karl Lagerfeld and designs for Hermes.
