Hello! My name is Yotam, and I specialize in teaching a variety of creative subjects with emphasis on building visual literacy.
I am an internationally-recognized artist with experience in painting, film, and animation. My figurative paintings have been exhibited and hang in private and public collections across the United States and in Europe, where I received training in the Flemish technique. My Master's thesis comprised a forged exhibition of original fakes; I considered pursuing a career as an art forger, but instead played it safe and moved to New York to try to make it as an artist. I am an avid art scholar and technical instructor. I have taught and lectured on painting, drawing, and film. I continue to work as a painter and gallerist.
In addition to art-making, particularly painting and drawing, I also possess a number of other professional-level skills that you might find useful to learn.
I use a light touch as a teacher, and my students have gone on to do great things. I hope we get to work together!
