Igael Tumarkin b.1933

Igael Tumarkin is an Israeli painter and sculptor.  Tumarkin prints of the sixties were at crossroads between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, and between Pop Art and abstract movements that followed. In addition, he was influenced by the Surrealism and Dada movements whose impact was expressed in the combination of free brushstrokes and drip paintings together with the use of such materials as newspaper cuttings, photographs and junk. Tumarkin has participated in various international exhibitions, and won many awards. His works are displayed in private collections and in museums both in Israel and abroad.
