ERMAY  Erez Maytal born in 1972, Haifa, Israel) is a visual artist and painter, who is best known for his black and white iconic PopArt He currently lives in Tel Aviv, Israel. He studied history of art, but claims he still learns art every day for the last 40 years. ERMAY started to develop his artistic career as a graffiti artist when he was a teenager. After long years of painting abstract,  He developed a new technique based on figurative painting mixed with abstract layers. This signature technique became his own form of expression.

His recent works focus on the search of the beyond. Pop icons painted in black ink, like stencils, and then deformed with multiple layers and textures. The fascinating outcome expresses the impact of time and doubts the eternity of the pop icon, suggesting fame is never endless. His long-time career in advertising as a creative director, influenced his art in a dramatic way. The daily work based on building brands, focusing on creating iconic images and slogans reflects in his art.

ERMAY’s works can be found in private collections in Israel, USA and Serbia.
