Yotam Hadar graduated in 2006 from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. For a final project, he drew portraits of his 74 classmates. "I then gave each of them a copy of his portrait, and asked for something in return. The portraits and exchange objects were documented in a book, and exhibited in my class’s graduation exhibition. Each portrait was printed in hundreds of copies and hung for the duration of the exhibition, while visitors were invited to take their favorites home with them. An interesting, almost interactive popularity meter was created."
Yotam is currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
