  • Salon D'Automne Israel
    The task involved designing a book cover for the first ever Salon D'Automne Israel, a subsidiary of the eponymous fine art show in Paris, alluding to the vibrant color and culture of Jaffa, Israel.  I submerged the iconic view of Jaffa from the coast with strong primary colors and a starkly calm sky.  The colors of the sea reflect the incoming culture.
     
    The Salon D’Automne is a renown art exhibition showcasing the work of aspiring young artists, founded in 1903 as a reaction against the conservatism of the Paris Salon.  Begun by Matisse, Derain, Rouault and others, it has gone on to show the work of many influential artists of the 20th century.
