Shay ID Alony

Shay Alony is a contemporary artist and cultural activist who lives and works in Israel.

“I’m often asked if I’m an artist or a designer, but I prefer the term “creator”. People have a tendency to divide things up, but I’m drawn to an earlier stage, before the point at which we determine that ‘this is art, and it goes in a museum’, and ‘this is design, and it’s for the home’. I can’t separate design and art—I think about it all, in parallel.”

About the artist

Shay Alony’s artwork is inspired by his research on the personal, cultural, and figurative realms depicted in mediums of sculpture and installation. Read More

Why bronze and why now?

Alony began his artistic career in bronze, as an apprentice to the renowned Uri Katzenstein, but then focused on other materials that gave him more flexibility as a young artist. Read More
