Zai Divecha is a San Francisco-based artist and metalworker. She’s a Bay Area native and Yale grad who learned how to weld at the age of 14. Blending digital fabrication tools with traditional metalworking techniques, Zai creates large, geometric wall hangings out of metal, wood, and paper. She works out of a shared metal shop in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. Follow Zai on Instagram for behind-the-scenes photos from the metal shop. Download curriculum vitae here.
