Lior Vaturi is an Israeli-born artist who works in New York City.
His current work depicts a range of subject matters, drawing inspiration both from nineteenth century reprographic technique and modern day digital expression. Using both halftone and pixel grids, combined with cut wood, acrylic paint and color stain, surfaces start to take shape, resulting in an optical illusion effect that can be experienced up close and from a distance.
Lior's background and experience in the graphic and design industry serves as foundation for this shift in his creative practice, where, through almost meditative like process, he explores a more tactile and tangible interpretation of a visual expression.
