Embroidery on metal, gas tank

Guy Zagursky

Born in Israel in 1972, he lives and works in Tel-Aviv and Berlin.

Guy Zagursky is best known for his playful artistic objects, sculptures, and installations.
Greatly inspired by the world of classic sailor tattoos, Zagursky’s work is visually playful, and at the same time critically deals with issues as contemporary culture, masculinity, and body image.
His creation process is dynamic and rhythmic, allowing for the context and meaning of his art to evolve through it. Zagursky uses a wide range of figurative and abstract references related to various cultural fields - from literature to wrestling. He keeps experimenting with new techniques such as applying embroidery on heavy metals; a practice that requires meticulous work and effort, emphasizing the contrast between the intense labor put into the sculptures and the light-as-air images placed on them.
