Tslil Tsemet

Tslil Tsemet’s work has been called “tactless kinky realism” where she examines the human species based upon the social and cultural values to which they are inextricable and to the ideals that society grasps in order to maintain sanity. Tsemet paints and sculpts with the use of symmetrical composition, blurring the lines between kitsch and sacrament, sanctifying the so called amoral and secular in modern situations. The work plays with mythological illustration and stories, where the modern, western mind completes the tale. Tsemet who lives and works in Tel Aviv, one of the most exciting cities in the Middle East, is also a tattoo artist. She received her B.F.A at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and was the named artist of the year by Calcalist magazine. Her work has been featured in Alfred Gallery, The Petach Tikva Museum, and The Municipal Art Gallery to name a few. Tsemet will show selected works from her private collection at Studio Bancs’ mixed medium art series, Culture Pop IV this December.

From painting walls, murals to galleries and most recently with his new obsession of hand crafting one of a kind designer toys.
