Kun Shay

Shay Kun was born in Tel Aviv in 1974. 
He studied art at both Goldsmiths College, in London and the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. 

He utilizes a rich, bold color scheme and a highly legible figurative style to render paintings that exhibit the humorous interplay of the stratified world socio-political situations. 

Implementing vibrant acrylic hues and imagery from Saturday morning cartoons, urban magazines and internet clip art, Kun lends a universality to his visual language.
De-individualizing his figures and compositions and edging into the viewer’s everyday subconscious, 
Kun uncovers a path to an otherwise complex issue, ultimately subverting Pop-culture by accessing its latent socio-political content. 

He currently resides and works in New York City.
