A visual artist, designer and architect DPLG, I explore in my work, the intersections between art , design and space.
After a singular international and multicultural approach, learning art in Israel and India, followed by training in architecture in Jerusalem, Berlin and Paris, in 2000 I got my master’s degree in architecture with honors and in unanimously at Paris La Villette. From 1996 to 2005, I worked in the offices of notorious architects such as Jean Nouvel, Christian de Portsamparc , Jean- Paul Viguier.
Since 2006, I put my skills as a designer and visual artist in Talva Design in art, design and decorative arts projects. The activity is multidisciplinary: I work both on purely artistic projects and design projects, furniture and objects, decorative products, space design and consultation. Talva Design creations are exhibited regularly in international exhibitions of art and design including Maison & Objet in Paris, Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, etc. . . .
I was laureate of the city of Paris and Jules Pansu offering a contemporary look on the traditional Jacquard Tapestry in 2009. Finalist Design Award of the City of Paris 1996, I presented at the Biennial of Design in Saint -Étienne in 2008, Art Biennale de Paris in 2009, lately I was appointed a member of the jury for art, design and architecture in Germany for a few international contests.
For three years, in the quest for a dedicated and passionate design and art, I am engaged in design projects that rely on the spirit of sustainability and social dimension that now dominate my activities. This is the case of the following projects that can be seen on this web site: «Embroidered Memories” , a testimony of my experience working in collaborative research , it is also the case of a research project of a new material called ” Paper & Metal” based on artisanal production. The art installation and research called «urban wood» which recreates the wood recycled by upcycling paper in a poetic way, or «Workshop & Up -cycling «since 2011 upcycling annual program.
My working method follows a long-term dimension; I often develop a theme I then expand in several fields and projects. This is the case, for example, on the theme of motherhood, a personal research project I developed for several years on five projects and Medias between a painting exhibition, “The Garden of Creation” the winning project competition of Jules Pansu and the City of Paris with a contemporary interpretation of traditional jacquard tapestry technical followed by production. «The Steles of creation», an exhibition and installation of the Madonna and Child in the church of the Madeleine in Paris project; followed by production of a new series of high-end textile panels. As well as “The point of balance”, a project of an armchair exposed to at the International Biennale of Design in Saint- Etienne.
