One of the city’s most popular summer spots, Frishman Beach is immediately recognizable by the familiar beachfront: a jagged medley of high-rise hotels alongside the iconic rainbow facade of the Dan Panorama Hotel, designed by Israeli artist Ya’akov Agam. The relentless Israeli sunlight fills the canvas, bright but sullied by the dust-filled air, and the summer’s heat is palpable.

This painting depicts Frishman beach in Tel Aviv, one of the city’s most popular summer spots. The heat of the Israeli summer is palpable, rising from the sands and blurring the image. The stark, relentless light so typical of the Israeli sky fills the canvas, bright but sullied by the dust-filled air. People walk casually along the beach: a couple wade into the water, while another group of brightly-clad figures play in the shallow waves. Tel Aviv’s familiar beachfront can be seen in the background: a jagged medley of high-rises hotels, low-rise apartment buildings, and empty parking lots. The rainbow facade of the “Dan Panorama” hotel, designed by Israeli artist Ya’akov Agam, presides over the beachfront, an immediately recognizable city icon for locals and tourists alike.
