Born in Israel in 1978, Roy has an M.A. and M.F.A from Bezalel. Roy lives and creates in Tel Aviv. The main theme of Roy’s work is the tension between order and chaos. He is attracted to the infinite boundaries of nature.
He tries to find logic in numerous systems, relations and natural laws that exist in
the macro and micro cosmos. He wishes to arrange them in new ways creating a conscious mechanism which leads to the discrimination of vision and thought.
Yariv’s paintings appear in large scale formats, and maintain a dialogue with the geometrical, expressive and minimalist abstract; while at the same time offering a figurative reading of the images.
The paintings are constructed in repetitive painting actions which take place during a certain period of time.
Yariv presents in exhibitions and is one of the founders of the gallery P8.
