“I studied the story of my grandfather’s journey to Israel and what it was like to grow up as a quarter Ethiopian in a kibbutz in the Galilee. I draw inspiration from nature, native art, and Ethiopian art in particular.”
Moran Yogev is an Israeli illustrator and graphic designer. She graduated with distinction from the Minshar School of Art in Tel Aviv. She lives in Kibbutz Hagoshrim in northern Israel with her husband, Nis, sons Adam and Omer, and their lovely dog, Menny.
Moran illustrates books and magazines for both children and adults where she specializes in print techniques, such as linocut and foam stamps. Among the books she illustrated, you may find the book “Yerus Goes to Jerusalem” (Dror)—the story of an Ethiopian Jewish girl and her family who embark on the journey to Jerusalem—and “Miriam, You Tell Me” (Kineret Zemore Bitan).
Moran also illustrates for the children’s magazine Einayim and the magazine Liberal. She has participated in many exhibitions, including the Tel Aviv 2020 Illustration Festival and the Outline Jerusalem Festival.
