Hila Flashkes

Hila is an experimental multidisciplinary artist ─ puppeteer, graphic designer, performer and stage designer ─ who loves to encounter the unfamiliar and explore new worlds.

Combining the traditional with the contemporary, and incorporating wood carving techniques, comics, typography, puppets and props with technology, sensors and computers, Hila is inspired by the futuristic world and geometric forms.
