Art Basel: The A4I sightings begin
HermLife uses classical comic book references to describe what might become of the world if we continue to ignore Israel's plight. Facing seemingly-insurmountable obstacles and saddled by powers that are both its greatest strength and weakness at once, Israel must face an ever-changing cast of enemies, from the usual to a misinformed and fearful public.
The street artist Gaia whose works have been shown across the world adds a twist to his usual natural figures. The giant dove head symbolizes a hope for peace or, as the A4I mission states, Israel's right to exist in peace and safety.
Throughout Art Basel, there will be many subtle references to ISRAEL and to A4I. Here is but one example.
