NO WAY presents Unga’s photography work for the first time at Genesis as part of Photomonth, East London Photography Festival.
The port city of Haifa is home to some of the best street art in the world. A big part of the Haifa scene from day one, Broken Fingaz crew, a collective of artists who do brilliant graffiti works, T-Shirt designs and illustrations, was founded in 2001 by artist Unga, who, along with some friends who shared a love for bizzare and colorful images. Since then they are recognised as one of the premier names to come out of Israel’s scene, and have been touring the globe exhibiting and painting the streets of cities such as London, Paris, Berlin Vienna, Beijing, Phnom Penh, Tokyo, Milan and more.
It was during these trips that Unga starting taking pictures, initially as an important part of documenting their often ephemeral practice, but later also a visual blog, a way of experiencing some of the group’s idiosyncratic adventures and travels.
