About Yehouda Chaki

Yehouda Chaki’s paintings of landscapes and still lifes celebrate discrete moments of color that combine to form a roiling, beautiful whole. Like the Impressionists and the Pointilists that preceded him, Chaki’s pastoral imagery is imbued with the artist’s personal vision and experience of the natural world around him. Colours of Spring 1370 (2013) depicts a broad valley beneath a cloudy sky, rendered in bright, Fauvist colors. Chaki’s work also suggests the influence of painters of the Hudson River school, whose images of the luminous, rolling vistas of the American landscape deeply informed the country’s identity.

Greek-Canadian, b. 1938, Athens, Greece, based in Montreal, Canada
