Samy Deluxeby Eyal de Leeuw | 03.04.14
A true renaissance man, Samy D. is a multidisciplinary artist and designer, working in his Tel Aviv studio since 1997. D. has established his reputation in recent years as a leading ceramic artist and designer though his work includes also interior design, fashion design (new men’s collection soon?) and unique collaborations with different artists
If you are in Tel Aviv this week there is not too much chance you can avoid one of his projects. On April 1st he opened a new stunning exhibition at The Farm Gallery in Holon, as part of the Holon Design Week.
For the exhibition “Golden Age” Samy D. created a unique collaboration with video artist Ronen Sharabani. The exhibition plays on the seamline between memory and reality and produces a chilling encounter that challenges the myth of ‘golden childhoods’.
Visitors to the exhibition can also see a preview of Samy D.’s new collection titled Pompei. Tableware from this collection will be showcased at Samy D. Black, his new pop-up concept store to be opened April 3rd (running till May 2nd).
