Guy Yanai’s Painted Chairs

Art & Design


We only just discovered the expressive paintings of Israeli artist Guy Yanai, whose small-scale oil on panel paintings range from illustrative to abstract. Naturally, we were pleasantly amused by these whimsical portraits of iconic Eames and Gerrit Rietveld chairs—skillfully rendered in dabs and strokes, their forms instantly recognizable as near-abstractions of line, shape and color.
