“David and the Sphinx”

in the Ori Toor’S gibberish Universe, it’s not uncommon to see bulbous cartoon creatures, leaves sprouting from machine bags, or tunnels wrapped in rainbows. Against a solid backdrop, the digitally rendered dreamlands are bursting with fantastic elements and moody, while Toor plays with size and shape and plants a yellow pyramid or a robot cat on different levels. Every drawing develops naturally. A process Toor likes to create with a “Rorschach painting” trying to figure out what you see and then move on. I’m not sure what to convey until the piece is done. I think mostly I’m trying to feel safe in the world. “

Toor is based in Tel Aviv and has a growing collection from him gibberish Series on Behance. Prints, masks and other products with his illustrations are available at Society6.
