Eli Zafran 's City in the Sky is a series of drawings of post-war buildings in the process of or due for demolition, and they point to our obsession with recording the obliteration of symbols of power, as well as observing the passing of the utopian vision in the face of capitalism.

Geiger Tourism is composed of two screen prints from locations in Pripyat, Chernobyl. The first depicts an
amusement park completed just before the power plant disaster and consequently never used, the second features the facade of the town’s cultural centre.

Both are now the object of guided tours by visitors equipped with Geiger detectors, testament to human curiosity, but perhaps also to human optimism.


Eli Zafran completed his BFA at Bezalel Academy of Art, Jerusalem.

He is a graduate of the Slade School of Art (MFA), and his work is held in several public collections, including UCL Art Collections (Strang Print Room), Winchester College Art Collection and City of Hull Public Collection
