In a series of portraits he reinvented (or discovered), with a bit more of realism than the original characters, the hidden sensuality of those heroes who steal hearts of the princesses in fairy tales.

David Kawena is a from Israel and he was asked what it means to be a gay artist there:
"Actually being (a) gay artist, or straight artists who deals with ‘gay’ issues is pretty much a cool thing to be in Israel! Israel is very open minded and very narrow minded too - it's (a) mix of a place. We have a lot openly gay artists here, most of them are on prime time television - actors, fashion designers - and many singers who are openly gay are at the top of the national charts all the time. I do most of my work outside of Israel, but that's a different subject. I could very well be categorized as a straight artist who dose gay
work, or vise versa... You know?!”
Kawena’s work is primarily digital media.
