UMASQU

Tzachi Nevo is the designer and creator of the unique modern wall decor brand Umasqu.
He graduated from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design’s Industrial Design department in 1990.
For 25 years he did not work as a designer but worked in different positions in the advertising and web world.
Two and half years ago he went back designing and started working with three dimensional designs of familiar images such as human faces and animals heads.
The world of familiar images are Nevo's playground where he can disassemble and reconstruct forms.
The sources of inspiration for the images he creates are based on quotations from different design languages.
Few of his favorites are mid century modern, steampunk and cubism.
For example his latest Modern African collection is a modern take inspired by the great tradition of the african masks and the inherent lack of realism in them.
Nevo works in maker technology - his pieces are not one of a kind but at the same time are limited in quantity. It's important for him to create affordable art.
