Sher is an Israel-based artist/architect who scratches, burns and otherwise damages wood and cork boards to create graffiti-like images. These creations, however, seem somehow old, almost like hieroglyphics. There is also something reminiscent of Jean Debuffet (just a bit).
Sher doesn't just beat up on wood and cork--the burning and scratching is the beginning. He then brings out the images he sees post mangling of the wood.
