We all have a unique imagination. We are always getting inspired by our surroundings, and formulating new ideas and thoughts that stem from our experiences. For an artist based out of Tel Aviv, Israel, he brings his imagination to life, influenced by his everyday experiences in his home country.
From parenting to the modern society around him, Asaf Hanuka creates satirical illustrations with a humorous twist. With thought-provoking themes and colorfully captivating art, Asaf invites us into his life and his imaginative inner mind.
His award-winning webcomic series ‘The Realist’ is much like a creative diary of imagery as the artist tries to make sense of politics, technology, and his daily anxieties. In an interview with Comics Alliance, he reveals that he’s “trained in getting across an abstract idea using an image.”
