Greetings, I am delighted to introduce myself. I am Shay Farkash, the founder and owner of “Tchelet Studio.”
My roots trace back to a family deeply entrenched in paintbrush manufacturing in Tel Aviv. At the beginning of my way, I joined the family business, Peer Brushes.
At the age of 24, I studied industrial engineering and management at the Institute of Labor Productivity and Production. Expanding my horizons, I undertook a certificate program in Preservation of Built Heritage at the School of Architecture, Tel Aviv University, between 2002 and 2004, when I was 46 years old. In 2000, I came to the field of documenting, preserving, and restoring wall paintings. During that time, I partnered with the painter Eli Shaltiel, and we founded Tchelet Studio.
Tchelet Studio has been operating for over 20 years, specializing in documenting, conserving, and restoring wall paintings and architectural paint.
In addition to wall paintings, the studio undertakes various projects and activities related to all aspects of material heritage preservation. Situated in the Lod industrial area, our studio operates from a space that serves as a workplace and a home. Most of our work is carried out in the field, within historic buildings for preservation, all over the country.
