Israel’s one of the most important and prolific illustrator, David Polonsky, will be visiting India for celebrating 30 years of diplomatic relations. Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador of Israel to India Naor Gilon said, “David Polonsky is one of the top illustrators in Israel and his works are known all over the world. His visual language is delightful, deep and unique. We are very happy that he is visiting India. We hope this will further boost Israel – India culture ties.”
Polonsky’s illustrations are quite different from that of newspapers and magazines. Rather they are more vibrant made for the comics, journalism and children’s books.
The award-winning illustrator will attend the Tata Literature Live, The Mumbai LitFest from November 11 to November 13. He will deliver a session on the creative process of adapting the famous diary “ANNE FRANK” to comics and conducting a workshop on “DRAWING FROM MEMORY- Illustrations of the everyday.”
“This is the first visit of Mr. Polonsky to India. He represents the long chain of creative artists from Israel, who find India as a source of inspiration. He will conduct a workshop at SRFTI (Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute), with whom we have deep ties and I hope that this collaboration will continue and deepen,” Reuma Mantzur said.
