Albert Yonathan's work uses aesthetic elements that encompass contemporary forms combined with semi-traditional nature drawings that hint at hidden spiritual dimensions and connections. His deeply personal, figurative works depict the process of drawing, composing and transferring images that negotiate the complexity of the interrelationship between humanity and nature.

He combines flora or fauna with traditional abstract patterns to create the characteristics of ancient totems. The totems reveal the artist’s fascination with the mystical aspects of nature that spiritually influence human beings. He utilizes simple, forms of animals, lowers and plants to illustrate his spiritual interaction with nature and simultaneously, his parallel, meditative process in making art.

Albert resists photorealism in the images, although they are executed in a naturalistic way. All the images are symbols, and are flatly juxtaposed rather than put together by way of realistic perspective, so that even the empty space on the paper between them becomes more than just a passive background. His aim was to create mysterious and mystically beautiful images that parallel our experience of nature as both beautiful and mysterious.
