Welcome to CaveGeekArt! My name is Kfir and I have been a creative and a geek for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I spent countless hours reading fantasy and sci-fi books, playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends, and imagining fantastic worlds filled with monsters and epic adventures.
Then, in November of 2000, my life took a new course. I attended a course on wilderness survival which exposed me to the wide world of ‘primitive’ skills. From that moment on, a passion for ancient ways of doing things took over, and I began to focus my creativity on ancient techniques and natural materials.
A walk in the woods often yields a piece of wood or bone that “calls” to me. I might have no idea what it could become. Maybe a club, a bow, or a spear? Sometimes that piece of the woods sits quietly for years, until one day it tells me what it wants to be.
I began to focus on making traditional brain-tanned buckskin for a living. It is an ancient, yet still valid, natural technique to make an extremely soft, supple, luxurious, and yet strong and durable leather. After a few years, my love for all things geeky began to merge with my love for all things natural and primitive.
I started making bone knives and swords inspired by weapons I saw in movies or by various cultures. Soon, I got interested in pyrography, similar to wood-burning, and started burning fantasy maps on buckskin. It actually started with a map of Middle Earth.
To my surprise, art burned on buckskin acquires a three-dimensional look. I just can’t get enough of it! Every time I finish a piece, I can’t believe how cool it looks. Fortunately, I’m not the only one who likes my work. I’ve been featured on Geek & Sundry’s Lore Masters show, in Geek Exchange Magazine, Skin and Ink Magazine, and more.
Thanks for checking out my site, and I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it! If you’re interested in a map that isn’t just art, but an artifact, feel free to inquire about a commission.
