The present study is concerned with issues in the uniqueness and the global features of art works from Israeli young people reflecting their specific interests and perspectives about their life and world. The research population consists of 79 students aged 16-18 from three high schools in Beer- Sheva, Israel. When the research was conducted, they majored in art in the 11th and 12th grades. The findings of the research presented the following results: Some subjects deal with personal issues of selfidentity, feelings, personal situations, fantasies and dreams. The effect of the local daily events was shown through subjects from the fields of society, politics, security, and culture in Israel. Other subjects were influenced by figures and events portrayed in the global media, such as superheroes, fashion trends, social problems like drugs, and the worship of beauty. The knowledge that will be acquired from the research findings can be a contribution to the area of art education and to the understanding of society.
