The colorful and witty illustrations of Israeli illustrator Hanoch Piven have appeared throughout the last 20 years on both sides of the Atlantic: in most major American magazines and newspapers such as Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone and in many European publications from The London Times to the Swiss Die WeltWoche.
Piven's artwork has expanded from the pages of magazines into other media: from children's books to interactive exhibitions, apps for the iPad, advertising campaigns and TV programs.
Piven's latest book Let's Make Faces was published by Atheneum in 2013.
In Israel, Piven has gained great visibility due to his long time collaboration with the daily Haaretz and through his TV shows on the pre-K channel HOP TV and on the Education TV Channel. His method has been implemented in many kindergartens in Israel as a means to teach creativity to children.
Piven has lectured extensively about creativity in many venues across the world. Here is his talk at Tedx Jerusalem.
Since 2003, Piven has been conducting creative workshops. These workshops apply the principles of Piven's collage technique, prompting children and adults to experiment with common everyday objects and create their own works of art. Apart from being an easy and fun way to experience creativity, the workshops have been embraced by educators, art therapists and management consultants as an efficient tool for communicating through play.
Piven has also taught and lectured in many Art Schools around the world such as China Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing, Art Center of Design in Pasadena, Sheridan College in Toronto and Instituto Europeo di Design in Rome, SCAD in Savannah, Bezalel and Shenkar in Israel and more.
And last but not least, Piven is active in the field of Education, as Creative Director of Aulas Creativas, an online community of educators in Spain, and as a lecturer and conductor of creativity and communication workshops with students, teachers and parents.
