George Chemeche Biography

Israel, 1934

Born in Israel, this ESTABLISHED American painter and PRINTMAKER's sensual and romantic yet rationally conceived screen prints featuring plants and flowers are associated with the PATTERN & DECORATION movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

In Chemeche's work, we can see how chosen motifs are repeated in order to cover a surface in a uniform way. The results often have a painterly feel, but remain systematic.

Chemeche trained at the Avni School or Art in Tel Aviv, Israel, and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.
