Podwal employs incisive and often intricate line work to create stark images that reveal vivid emotions and tell complicated stories. Although the drawings’ topics are serious ones, his work shows enormous wit and frequently has charming whimsical touches… Like Wiesel’s words, Podwal’s art transcends mere images on paper to serve as a witness to the Jewish historical experience.
