Mexican, b. 1963

Biography

Figurative painter Yishai Jusidman is renowned for his marriage of pre-modern figurative techniques, such as egg tempera and anamorphosis, with the developments of Minimalism. Dissatisfied with contemporary art’s departure from pre-modernist practices, Jusidman searches for ways to blend the practices of conceptualism with precise representations of subject matter; for him, this clarity of subject makes the heavily theoretical operations of Conceptualism and Minimalism easier for the viewer to comprehend. He is most famous for his portraits of clowns and mental patients.
