The Love Story behind Unbreakable
Tomer Peretz is a former soldier, an artist, and a visual painter who transformed grief and heartbreak into his visual art collection, “Unbreakable,” to process the pain of losing his brothers in war.
“The process just made me think about it and deal with that. The only thing I thought about when I was painting [that] was my memories. And I started to:
‘Okay, the next painting, what is it gonna be about?’
And the ideas came really fast because everything came back to me so quick. Sometimes it was not easy to think about those things. I got in contact with the family of my friend who got killed, and they saw the artwork, and we got in touch…and we met, and the whole past came back to me. I realize that I’m dealing right now, with the reality, which is the pain and what I went through. All of my service, which I was trying to push away, came back. Basically, the art made me go back.” — Tomer Peretz
