Fragments from a great trip in India
A collaboration with Nitzan mintz ♡
After few days of wandering around in beautiful Prague, we finally found the perfect wall located on the side of Argo publishing house in Zizkov.
In the next ten amazing minutes all the arrangements were done and we got the owner's blessing.
Four days of painting left Nitzan and me a bit shocked from how things turned out and filled with nice memories from the great experience of painting side by side and the company we had around us
The place felt right ant everything just clicked.
Many thanks for the support from the Embassy of Israel in Prague,Nakladatelství Argo, Petrohradská kolektiv, Czech center Tel-Aviv and mega-producer Pavlina Schultz !
Honored to design custom made bandaids. Here are some recent bandaids on sweet believers. Contact me for one of your own.
Painting at the Jewish district in Lodz was moving and exciting with every stroke of paint.
Touching and painting the walls there, I could feel the history and pain of the area. Absorbing the surroundings I could imagine the area stories clearly.
Thank you Fundacja Urban Forms & Centrum Dialogu Łódź for inviting and supporting the project.
About the book by Hagar Bril:
Dede tends to document his works constantly, almost obsessively. Throughout his artistic path he has accumulated a rich visual archive which includes references, research, studio works, and street pieces, all coming together in the form of a book.
Dede’s documentation presented in the book exposes his large body of work and production, while revealing the ever-changing city landscape. This book immortalizes Dede’s practice and thought, alongside the dynamic changes of the city as it goes through phases of development, destruction and renewal. This scope of vision allows insight into the relationship between the urban system, the human conduct and an individual’s being in the world.

Paris, April 2016, A location of one of the November 13 attacks
In this work the order in the world is reversed. An unidentified city hovers far above. Clusters of buildings are detached from their familiar position on the earth and are left hanging in the air, without any foundations or stability. It is impossible to know from which land they were separated before they migrated to their new location, and they have no identifying marks indicating their origins.
The uncompromising reversal of creations in Dede's installation neutralizes the original designation of the buildings and animals, and their wild position in the space leads to a failure in their functioning.
The random hybrid creatures spread their wings and rush downwards contrary to all logic, as if they are fleeing some danger and seeking stable ground on which to place their feet. Yet this ground does not exist.
Ultimately the attempt to create a picture of an ordered world leads to nothing except a chaotic disorder of fragments with no purpose.
Curator: Hagar Bril
The exhibition Do Not Feed the Animals introduces a new body of works by Israeli street artist Dede, familiar to audiences from the public sphere. In recent years, motifs that allow to easily trace his imprint keep surfacing in the artist’s works: Band-Aids diversely used, little structures, sheds and buildings all integrate in his paintings, in the figures of animals made of wooden planks, ever on the run, searching or struggling. His large paintings are on display over walls in the public sphere, as well as in galleries, different art events and exhibition spaces in cultural hubs around the world, such as London, New York, Tel Aviv and Berlin.
The present exhibition is the culmination of a long work process, where Dede explored the constantly changing urban fabric. In his new works, he chose to dedicate a special place for the relationships at play between image and place, and between the Israeli art field and the urban environment that it inhabits
Opening: 12/03/15 ,8:00pm, Dan Gallery, 107 Ben Yehuda street, Tel Aviv

First time in about ten years that i see this place so buffed.
Thanks for leaving my teeth piece
Wind Up Teeth
30m wide x 10m high piece, The abandoned Dolphinarium, Tel-Aviv, 2015
Without any doubt, the biggest art challenge I have ever had. This piece was hard to achieve.
Stormy nights, high rollers from the ground, the all deal. But it had to be done, I had this vision for almost a year now.
This landmark is found in the middle of continuing ownership arguments, another real estate bite in Tel-Aviv's view.
