My name is Gil Gibli. As Portrait Artist, I specialize in drawing leading figures in the news.
However, over the years, while drawing portraits for the Israeli business daily Globes,
I gained enormous experience that helped me to broaden the scope of my work to include also Forensic Art – an amazing, intriguing and creative form of art in itself.
I draw using a cross-hatch technique that's been in use since newspapers were first published, but I’m using the technique with a 21st century twist: all I need is a photo of the subject and the image becomes an icon that enhances the newspaper layout as well as the virtual media platform. My News Portraits add a whole new dimension to any media platform.
Please feel free to meander along the various paths of my Virtual Gallery where you will find how art can be a continuous adventure.
