Located in Tel Aviv, Tzuki Art studio is operated by Israeli artist Shay Peled . The studio was established several years ago by Peled and and his partner at the time, Orna Cohen Hazam. Peled, a graduate of the Technion Academy Institute, worked as an interior designer for 10 years. A few years ago their path s crossed again and the guys decided to join forces under the name Tzuki Art.
In Tzuki Art collection, Peled demonstrates his approach to art as a way to make people smile and warm their hearts. In the field of Judaica art, Tzuki's unusual and groundbreaking approach has brought a touch of freshness to the ancient tradition, making serious religious articles feel more approachable, humorous and endearing. Tuzki has successfully reached across traditional boundaries in the niche of Jewish art and has subsequently been embraced by secular and orthodox Jewish communities.
Now employing 15 painters, Tzuki Art supports the local community by providing various elderly organizations with opportunities to do therapeutic work in the studio.
Tzuki Art pieces are sold exclusively to shops. They are available at prestigious stores, boutiques, museum stores and galleries in Israel. And now, artwork by Tuzki Art is finally available on the international market.
