Ygal Gabay was born in 1969 in Harlem, The Netherlands and subsequently lived in Belgium and Israel. Since 1998 Ygal dedicates his life to art. He is an outsider artist, also known as Art Brut, as he has no formal academic art education and is entirely self taught. This allows him unfettered creativity. Ygal's intuitive and spontaneous work transports the viewer in a world steeped in freedom, color and dreamlike forms. Ygal is based in Brussels, Belgique and frequently travels to New York, and Tel Aviv. Ygal's work is prominently featured in private collections in Belgium, USA, Hong Kong and Tel Aviv.
