Tomer Hanuka is undoubtedly one of the most famous illustrators, cartoonists and graphic novelists in the world.
Born and raised in Tel Aviv, moving to New York in his early twenties to attend SVA (School of Visual Arts) in Manhattan, one of the most important artistic institutes of the whole American continent.
Here begins his now long and prolific career, characterized by suggestive images that sometimes manage to leave the viewer unsettled, almost breathless.
His works in fact have a very strong narrative force and are often inspired by great masterpieces of cinema or literature, as shown also by the different alternative cinema posters he has made, such as Star Wars, as well as a series dedicated to various films by Stanley Kubrik.
His illustrations arouse a remarkable emotional impact, dictated by his often dark settings and with the use of an original color palette.
His works range from book covers to the movies industry.
He has won numerous awards at the Society of Illustrators and the Society of Publication Designers.
In 2009 he won a Golden Globe and earned an Oscar nomination for Waltz with Bashir, an animated documentary made with his brother Asaf, also a great illustrator and with whom he also created the comicstripBipolar and the graphic novelThe Divine.
