Gleaning inspiration from Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse and the French Impressionists, Giora Angres has fashioned an impressive body of vivid images based on the human spirit.
As a boy he won a scholarship to the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago and spent years studying art in Europe. In Paris he slowly developed his distinctive style that made him internationally famous. His art is exhibited in Art Museums, over fifty galleries world-wide and permanent art collection.
Angres Paintings speak of “joy de vivre” depicting animated figures in various states of activity and repose. Musical and dance, cityscapes, mother and child comprise much of his work. In the late 60’s Artist Angres put aside his paint brush and became another species of artist, a Cosmetic Surgeon.
After the 9/11 tragedy Dr. Angres put aside his scalpel and picked up his paint brush which was never far from his side and started to create his best work.
Portraying color, dance, wine women and song and joy that life really is ,even in the face of adversity.
Today, Angres the artist paints in a studio tucked away in a small village overlooking the Pacific. It is here basking in the sensitivity of the tropics that he finds inspiration for his truly provocative paintings combining the beauty of the present moment, nature, music and art for all to enjoy.
