Tzuri Gueta (Israel 1968 - )


About

The underwater world is a source of inspiration for Tzuri Gueta, as expressed by his collaborations with the world's leading fashion brands, such as Chanel, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Lacroix, Thierry Mugler, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Karl Lagerfeld; in his studies at the Department of Textile Design of the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design; and even as a young child growing up by the Givat Olga beach. At the age of three he put his head into the water, and already looked with wonderment at the magical world he had discovered: the flora, corals and reefs.
Guetta's artworks are exhibited and sold around the world, including at the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York, the British Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and others. Much like a painter relates to his canvas and a sculpture to stone, Gueta considers fabric to be his foundation, a starting point for integrating art, fashion, design and textiles; into which he introduces advanced science and technological advancements of his own creation that have been registered as international patents. In this way, he fascinatingly demonstrates the potential inherent to the encounter between traditional techniques, innovative technologies and the human factor.
The linkage between traditional lace fabric and his sophisticated use of silicone, and the colorful underwater motifs that are interwoven in his work, create a mesmerizing and impressive effect. His designs integrate silicone polymer with fabrics: using a complex technological process, he injects polymeric substances that pass through the fabric, creating an abundance of diverse and colorful textures.
