David Duvshani

Born 1991 in Israel, lives and works in Tel Aviv.


Duvshani works with comics, painting, drawing, and print techniques. His works focus on charged historical and political narratives and are characterized by humor and satire. 

 

Duvshani holds an MFA degree from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, and the  Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris. His works have been exhibited locally and internationally - in solo exhibitions in EnclaveProjects in London, Beaux Arts de Paris, and in an upcoming show at Alamcen Gallery in Jaffa. He has participated in group exhibitions in venues such as the Ein-Harod Mishkan Museum, the Nahum Gutman Museum in Tel Aviv, Hanina Gallery in Tel Aviv, WhiteNight in Paris, and the Griffin Gallery in London. Duvshani publishes a weekly comic column, Hishuvei Kitzin, in Haaretz newspaper, in collaboration with Julia Fermentto, and is a regular contributor to Tohu magazine. His book Crusades was published in 2019 and launched at an event at the Palais-de-Tokyo, Paris.
