Starseed_ The Socially Adept Illustrations of Ruth Gwily

Ruth Gwily
Born In Israel
Finished “Bezalel” academy for art and design in Jerusalem

At first glance, Ruth Gwily’s illustrations are simple and aesthetic… but in subtext they confront various social problems in society. Peppered in are other illustrations of random things she must enjoy, like Hummus, Fruits, and Wu-Tang Clan and posters/ commissioned pieces . I find her work to be refreshing and has a distinct style that sets them apart from any other. Most importantly her art can be as a tool not only for self expression but to spread awareness and incite critical thinking in the minds of the audience. This is an example of how we can give a different perspective on the ills of society through our creativity and arts. You can find her work in news-papers and magazines world wide with clients like The New York Times, Wall street Journal, Washington Post etc.
