Hanoch’s art, made with everyday found objects, stimulates us to look at our world in a playful new way, engaging the viewer in active participation. Many schools and institutions in the US and abroad use Hanoch’s collage method to make art and visual communication more accessible, comprehensible and achievable. Throughout the last 10 years Hanoch has emerged as a humorous and captivating speaker, conducting creative workshops and cultivating spaces of creative communication amongst educators, executives and professional leaders. When he is not flying between the two Mediterranean cities of Jaffa and Barcelona, Hanoch dreams about creating a traveling art center which will arrive to areas of need. Hanoch has collaborated with the Tinkering Studio several times, facilitating collage workshops for visitors along side Tinkering Studio staff, and helping us develop his technique into a stop-motion animation experiment.
