The Art of Itzchak Tarkay
Itzchak Tarkay's paintings
Itzchak Tarkay was born on the Yugoslav-Hungarian border and
immigrated to Israel after World War II. He studied art and
design in the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem in the 1950s, and was
heavily influenced by French Impressionism and
Post-Impressionism era. Tarkay is most notable for utilizing
Matisse’s colour sophistication in combination with
Toulouse-Lautrec’s drawing style. Tarkay’s art focuses on dream
images of elegant women in classical scenes as it draws the
audience into an imaginary world. To date, the works of Itzchak
Tarkay continue to intrigue the imagination of contemporary
European artists, achieving recognition as a leader of a new 21st
century generation of figurative artists.

Future Career Choice:
- Who is your Favourite Artist?
favourite surrealist artist is probably Vladimir Kush followed
by Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali.
- What is it about their work that appeals to you?
I had a
hard time choosing my favourite artist, but my favourite style
of art is without a doubt surrealism. A surrealist painting is
so complex and weird yet at the same time so beautiful. It draws
you in as a true reflection of the artist's mind.
- In all
your years at ArtVenture, which was your favourite ArtVenture

a lot of fun with it and I loved the freedom we had with the

Yes definitely! Although I won't
be going into fine arts, my experience working and volunteering
at ArtVenture has ignited a passion within me to work with
- What lessons did
you take from ArtVenture that you feel applies to daily life?
Patience, patience, patience. Whether it's trying to improve my
own piece of art, teaching the kids a new skill or reassuring a
young student who isn't happy with their own art, being at
me to be calm and patient with everything I do.
