Hanoch Piven

Hanoch Piven was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1963, and came to Israel at the age of eleven. An artist, editorial caricaturist and illustrator of children's books, Piven studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Over the last 20 years, his colorful and witty illustrations have appeared on both sides of the Atlantic – in Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, the London Times and the Swiss Die WeltWoche, to name but a few. In Israel, Piven has gained great visibility due to his long collaboration with the daily Haaretz and the animated TV series he has developed. Piven has received a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York (1994), the Society of Publication Designers' Silver Medal, and the Parents Choice Gold Award for "Faces iMake" (an Ipad App). His book What Presidents Are Made Of was elected one of the 10 Best Children’s Books of 2004 by Time Magazine. Piven lives in Jaffa and Barcelona.
