Guy Shaked's Profile
My name is Guy Shaked - my last name means almond tree, and my shop's name, "Almendro", has the same meaning.
I was born in Jerusalem in 1980. About 10 years ago, I decided I didn’t want to work for anybody anymore and began making my living with my own two hands.
Since then, I have been making my art and selling it where ever I went.
For many years, I traveled with my workshop on my back. I lived in Bolivia for two years, in Brazil for a year and a half, and many more months in Argentina, Colombia and Peru. I also spent a few summers in Europe, where I got familiar with the streets of Oslo, Zurich, Milan, Barcelona and the beaches of Italy and Spain.
Now, after two years in my hometown Jerusalem, I moved to the north to live closer to the wild and far from the city…
