My relationship with the place where I live is an inseparable part of my work. This relationship is cultural, social and political. In the 1980s I began to initiate, design and produce personal posters dealing with my society and its politics. I relate mainly to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, and its effect on Israeli society. Most of these posters are unacceptable to the public at large, but they are an expression of the freedom of speech which exists in Israel. These posters are instantaneous reactions to occurrences and developments.

This body of my work, in which I initiate and produce my own messages, not for commercial purposes but from a personal need, is the most important to me. They were produced per-bono as part of a campaign calling both sides to stop the violence in the Gaza strip.The posters call for demonstration in Tel Aviv. The message is bold, simple and aggressive as I believe political poster should be. As a result, poster is in both Arabic and Hebrew.
