“We want artists to be brave tellers of truth – not just creators of seductive images or spatial contortionists. Gil Mualem-Doron is one of those brave truth-tellers who sees the inequities in daily life and highlights them through his art, which is neither didactic nor simple-minded.”

Professor William Menking, Pratt Institute & Founder of The Architect’s Newspaper.


“Mualem-Doron’s engaging and provocative body of work offers a deeper understanding of what it means to subvert in an oppressive situation… Thank goodness for this edgy artist, pushing against the status quo in such a compelling way”

Professor Beverly Naidus, Artist, Activist, Educator, University of Washington, Tacoma.


“Using carefully honed agitprops and site-specific performances, Gil Mualem-Doron is a hugely erudite socially engaged practitioner. A quintessential ‘artist-as-agitator’ he is encouraging his audience to speak up, participate and radically question the status quo in what are increasingly challenging times."  Áine O’Brien and Almir Koldzic – Co-Directors, Counterpoints Arts
