Biography / Know Hope

Addam Yekutieli and over the years expanded his style and technique, working with and on murals, installations, mixed media, photography and text. Using the moniker Know Hope, his visual iconography and language used to mirror real-life situations and document the notion of a collective human struggle. His work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/2 in 2014.

Born in California, Know Hope moved to Israel at the age of 10 and began working as a street artist in 1995. His work’s most striking feature is the repetitively used and innocently sad yet mischievous looking character with lanky arms and legs, carrying a heart or a white flag. Being in complete awe of his City, Tel Aviv, he wanted to create something to be a part of it. Despite not considering his own art to be solely political, he acknowledges that it is hard to create something that does not relate to political-mechanics of the country. Making emotions a visual focal point of his work, Know Hope is looking to create parallels between said political-mechanics and emotional conditions that follow. Having spent most of his life in Tel Aviv, the constant Iraeli-Palestinian conflict can be seen as having the biggest influence on his art and the message he wants to convey.
