About Us

Tali Farchi (NL) & Royce Deans (USA)
co-founders of the ArtisTTable since 2013

Tali Farchi in The Netherlands

Tali Farchi was born and raised in the heights of Mount Carmel, Haifa. Growing up in the sun-drenched north of Israel is what gave shape to her artistic eye: a fascination with light has been a recurring theme in her work, even after moving to the less-than-sunny Netherlands.

Currently situated in the old medieval city of Zwolle (the Netherlands), Tali uses her work to explore the limits of traditional mediums, experimenting with brushstrokes, the texture of the paint, and the relief of a canvas. Each of her works enters a conversation between structure and shape: and when she gets in the final word, the painting is done.

Though Tali’s work is often abstract in nature, she also harbors a passion for figure painting as well as landscape painting. In her sketchbook, she applies a quick hand to mediums such as oil pastels, aquarelles, and charcoal. For more of her work, see here.

Royce Deans in Michigan, USA

Royce Deans is a graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago, where he specialized in drawing, illustration, and painting. His years in Chicago have defined much of his art, and it shows: the expansive landscapes of both urban and rural Michigan are often at the heart of Royce’s paintings.

But while the local environment has shaped the base of his artwork, it is at the global level that Royce found the great altering inspiration.

Over the past eight years, through his collaboration with Dutch-Israeli Tali Farchi, Royce has developed his abstract work. Together they have experimented with the connection between visual art and music,

painting with- while inspired by- live musicians worldwide.

In that way, much of Royce’s work reflects on the ‘immediate’: how Plein-Air landscape painting reflects a visceral environment; how real-life model painting creates a sense of humanity; how painting to live-music echoes inspiration. His art has been showcased in galleries in Michigan, Illinois, Utah and the Netherlands. For more on his work, see here.
