Founded in 2001, multidisciplinary art collective Broken Fingaz (Kip, Unga, Tant and Deso) are regarded as one of the first graffiti crews to emerge from Haifa, Israel, and their name is now at the forefront of contemporary street art.
With their independent approach and shared appreciation of illustration, the BFC's success has been unprecedented. In over a decade working together, they are renowned for their unique style, inspired by the peaks and troughs of life, everyday ephemera, old comic books, 80's skateboard graphics and neo-psychedelia amongst many other things. Starting out painting on the street and designing posters and graphics for local venues, the BFC's work encompasses graphic design, painting, film and installation.
Elucidating the importance of their contributions to the shape of the contemporary scene, the BFC's work was presented at exhibitions in Israel's most important visual arts institutions: the Tel Aviv Museum (2011) and the Haifa Museum of Art (2010). Since then they have exhibited widely outside Israel. In 2012 they presented their debut international solo exhibition in London (The Old Truman Brewery, 2012) with shows following in Vienna (Inoperable, 2012), Paris (Lebenson Gallery, 2012), Amsterdam (The Batallion Gallery, 2013) and Berlin (Urban Spree, 2013). In 2013 they were also invited to participate at Cut Out Festival, Queretaro, Mexico, where they produced a new stop-motion graffiti film.
Their public murals can also be seen on the streets of cities across China, Japan, Cambodia, Israel, UK, Germany, Holland, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Mexico and more.
In the press, the crew are regularly featured in art magazines including Juxtapoz, Complex and VNA. Accolades from national and international newspapers about the BFC's work include "the vitality and spirit of street art" (Evening Standard, UK), "successful arts collective...not everyone has their talent" (The Independent, UK).
