Emek's poster-making career accelerated in the 1990s with alternative rock acts from Europe and North America, including Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Marilyn Manson and the Decemberists.

Also a fine art painter, Emek lives in Portland, Oregon, and comes from a family of five artists in California. He was born in Israel while his artist parents lived on a kibbutz. In the states, his family, including Emek's younger brother and sister, lived in the Los Angeles area. His father worked as a caretaker. There was no TV at the home, just a radio and a well-equipped art studio. His parents also stayed active in political causes ranging from social justice and the peace movement to environmentalism.
