Bio

Born in 1909 in Mansourah, Egypt, Ezekiel Baroukh graduated from the French Highschool in Alexandria and studied painting in the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. In 1934, he started giving painting courses in Alexandria while developing his art. Encouraged by Muhammad Naghi, the artist joined the Atelier d’Alexandrie – a workshop gathering Alexandrian painters – and contributed to organizing its artistic events from 1940 to 1946. In the meantime, he was also an active member of the movement of Art and Freedom. From the early times of his career, he executed landscapes, portraits, or still-lives, but his oeuvre would progressively evolve towards abstraction. In 1946, he established in Paris and worked on a new artistic language exploring the abstract vocabulary with geometrical forms and flat colors. The artist kept on conducting his research for innovation, notably during the 1970s, when he experienced the use of monochrome before going back to figuration. Ezekiel Baroukh died in 1984; he was 75 years old.
