Pleased to meet you!
My name is Fugi Naim Malloul, a figurine crafter from Israel.
My work embodies my love of dolls and figurines, with which I’ve surrounded myself from a young age. Each piece is carefully and lovingly crafted and painted by hand, giving it a personality and a life of its own.
I use figurines from different eras and places around the world. These serve as the foundation of my creation – breathing new life into old objects, reinterpreting them from my own life experience, an extension of my being, a reimagining of simple pieces into more complex expressions.
I take vintage figurines and dolls that are out of production and, using plaster casts, recreate them as new representations of reality. Each piece is hand crafted in my studio, hand-painted with care and dedication.
