Danor Shtruzman is an Israeli artist who paints rough images of women laughing. Using vintage paper as his canvas he paints in an exaggerated style capturing a physically strained, unnatural moment of laughter. The focus of his work is close-ups of women in a fast-painting style that gives off a slightly deformed creepy aesthetic.
Shtruzman works in grayscale watercolors in order to maintain a confident and objective visual focus on the act of laughing. It enables the viewer to concentrate on the subject void of fashion, environment, and external context.
