From the Series

Oded Ezer: Tipocriaturas is a solo exhibition of work by the Israeli typographer Oded Ezer. It's taking place simultaneously in Sao Paulo and Brasilia in Brazil.

These exhibitions, which run until 28 February 2012, mark the first time that Ezer is showing his work in the South American country.

Tipocriaturas features a vast selection of Ezer’s commercial and experimental works, including "Typoplastic Surgeries", "Biotypography", "Typosperma" and "I (heart) Milton".

The exhibition was curated by Ruth Klotzel, who describes the exhibition as a wonderland, taking the viewer “to a place where inanimate objects gain the right to be part of the living world”.

Klotzel adds: “He [Ezer] reveals the real meaning of experimentalism, so banalised nowadays, discovering new paths, new meaning, new attitudes.”

Ezer also launched recently launched a new website. "Hebrew Typography" contains short articles, links and posts that are related to traditional and contemporary Hebrew typography and type design.
