David Tartakower is one of my Telavivians. He is 68 years old, lives and works in Tel Aviv.
Tartakover, known in his circle as Tarta, is without a doubt the most important Israeli graphic designer now days. A short bio will tell you that he is Israel Prize laureate for Design, 2002, an artist and designer of visual communication on culture and society, a curator for exhibitions on Israeli design and an explorer of the history of graphics in Israel.

Solo exhibitions of his work were held at the Israel Museum – Jerusalem, Tel Aviv Museum of Art and many more at Tokyo, Paris, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Osaka, Bordeaux, Warsaw to name a few.
His work has won numerous awards worldwide, too many to count, he is a member of Alliance Graphique International (AGI) and a Judge for design competitions worldwide.
Since 1975, Tartakover operates his own studio in Tel Aviv, specializing in various aspects of visual communications, with particular emphasis on culture and politics.

I have known Tartkover for 10 years now and during that time I had the opportunity to visit his Tel Aviv home and studio several times, last time in order to photograph this photo of him. Every time I enter his studio, a sense of calmness comes over me since it is one of the most beautiful houses/studios I have been to and the experience of seeing his work, whether done or in process is remarkable.

Here is your chance to see his work | www.tartakover.co.il

Tartakover is one of my Telavivians. I asked him to point out his. Tartakover’s telavivian will be coming soon…
