Nadav Kander: What is it that you Pursue?
I am not a lecturer. This talk is about a journey, an exploration for me, as much as it may be for all of you. It’s an honour to be asked to share my thoughts and feelings on my creative practice, the influences that have shaped me and the philosophy that underpins my approach to art.
I’ll be reflecting on what drives me in my pursuit, and hopefully inspiring you to discover the same for yourself. Whether it’s photography, painting, or any other form of artistic expression, I believe we are all drawn to these endeavours as a means of revealing something deeply personal to the world. So, I invite you to consider: What is it that you pursue?
*Please note that the talk won’t focus on Nadav’s advertising work; however, he will happily answer related questions.
