Dror Daum (b. 1970, Israel) is an artist and photographer living and working in Jaffa. Daum’s central occupation is the extraction of mostly found images from their original contexts and displacing them in new ones. With wit and ingenuity, Daum forms worlds that reflect the banal absurdities of everyday life. Daum is a graduate of the MFA program at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem. He is the recipient of the Israel Ministry of Culture and Sport Artist Encouragement Prize and the Igal Ahouvi Prize for a Promising Artist. Daum has participated in local and international group exhibitions. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at various galleries in Tel Aviv and the Herzliya Museum of Art. His last exhibition Afraid to Die/Afraid to Live was held at the Center for Contemporary Art in Tel Aviv in 2014.
