Anders Brokvist alias Ismael Ataria (born 1981); poet, writer and artist is born and grown up in Hagfors. Ataria is always touring with his one-man shows of poetry. Media describes the shows as a "rock concert without music!" - a mixture of comedy, humor and seriousness.

Ismael Ataria also writes for both radio and news papers and he has been given several culture prices; among others Hans Väpnargårds culture price in 2007, the Association Värmlandslitteraturs debutant price, Region Värmland's Litterature scholarship and Landstinget in Värmland's Fröding scholarship in 2016. He is also co-operating with Västanå Teater and together with Sophia Stinnerbom and her music they have been touring with the show "Livs Levande-en poetisk resa."

His artist name is a combination of an exciting character in a Bergman movie and a TV game manufacturer.
