Our first encounter with Shay was back in 2014 when he presented his show “Titans”, an installation of seven bigger than life sculptures, made of wood perceived as a sort of hybrid between monkeys, aliens, humans or mythological creatures with an African tribal influence. We immediately fell in love with his works, and after meeting him – fell in love with him. We knew that the time will come for us to collaborate.
Through our work process together, both sides felt that a mutual chord was struck and that each side brings out from the other, a hidden passion that rose out. Ours, the ongoing passion for art and for Shay a new found love for a mass form of art. We hope you enjoy our adventure as much as we did.

His artwork is a result of an on-going research conducted through personal, cultural, and figurative realms depicted through mediums of sculpture and installation. Shay’s main interest is in the representation of ritual energy with symbols of strength challenges, a sense of belonging and even humiliation.
Shay Id Alony achieved his masters degree in fine arts at the University of Haifa after studying interior design and architecture. These two fields combined influence his creative process: a constant research for the connection between body, object and space. His works expose the object and the user, the human quality and ambience of the environment, creating a new synthesis with a representation of power and vulnerability.
