Gonduras: Critters, and Self Exposure
Gonduras Jitomirsky is a self-taught photographer, illustrator and all ’round artist living and working in Tel Aviv. We befriended him on a website and were captivated by his critters, but know little about him except the amazing self-description he posted on his website, which we reproduce in whole. Also check out his blog, his other blog, his other-other blog, his flickr and maybe follow him on twitter. Geez.
I drink at times. And I smoke more now. I can still can lift dumbbells though. I ve never studie at an art school. What I studied was sociology, object-oriented programming, and graphic design.
My parents belonged to the middle class. While in kindergarten, I was in love with Oksana. I enjoy watching popular science TV shows with my feet soaking in a bowl. Or sitting on a roof looking down. Or lying down staring up. Watching people, too. I can say I like myself, but Iâ€™m seldom satisfied.
I do photography, drawing. I clay model, cut and paste, and unscrew things. I get the kick out of the process to rarely like the result. I think about many things. But then I often forget much. So I try to write it down and draw a picture beside it.
There are two phases of the year between the winter and summer solstices. Itâ€™s hard to say how this influences me. My dream is to illustrate â€œThe Critique of Pure Reasonâ€. I am a contradictory person. I think Iâ€™m straight-forward and open. Others often have a different opinion. Writing about myself, I stop for a moment to wonder if anyone needs this at all.
