Udi Gans, a painter, partner, and creative director at Parazar, a branding and advertising company, a designer, a dreamer, and always in love. A direct continuation of uncle Wolf, Grandma Friedel, and Dad Mickey, a third generation of artists who never left the world of paint, and a fan of the art of painting.

Each artwork exists in only 20 copies, in three different sizes according to your preference, and on unique paper with my personal signature.
