Le Bistro by David Azuz

David Azuz Biography

Tel Aviv, 1942 ?

Israel-born, France-based artist, Daid Azuz is FIGURATIVE painter, with a rich, colourful style.

His paintings are masterfully drawn and full of curiosity for the simple details of life. Azuz's subjects, in bistros and markets, whether in Rome, Paris or Tel Aviv, often express the solitude of the individual. These individuals are symbolic of the universal citizen and are deeply moving in their pathos and search for themselves.

He usually works late at night in Paris cafes in search of those characteristic attitudes of the bartenders and patrons, which tend to blossom at this time of the evening, for instance, young couples in love, hiding their romance in the corner or old ladies getting a little warmth from the anisette they sip slowly to make time go a long way. In today's world, it is comforting to meet an artist who has not indulged in fashion by abstracting the patterns of life, but. on the contrary, has used his knowledge of classical drawing and, above all, his passionate temperament to communicate to us the simple gestures of life which most have forgotten to do.
