Tzuri Gueta, a graduate of Shenkar College in the Tel Aviv area, is a designer and textile engineer who has been based in Paris since 1996. Growing up on the shores of the Mediterranean, he was in direct contact with the elements of nature, and his work reflects his roots.
After settling in Paris, Tzuri worked at Trend Union, an agency run by Li Edelkoort, and went on to concentrate on textile design. He challenged the conventions of the trade by approaching traditional handicraft with unprecedented techniques. This innovative approach gave rise to surprising materials that verged on sculpture – materials that deceive the senses of touch and vision. Good publications on this artist are scarce, but www.ftn-books.com has the Tel Aviv publication from 2010 now available.
