Dan Partouche was born in Tiaret, Algeria, 18 January 1936, third of 10 children. His father was an artist specializing in Jewelry manufacture and goldsmithing.  As a child Dan showed interest in the intricate detail of his father's filigree necklaces and earrings.

1954 at age 18 Dan immigrated to Israel, mined the Kibbutz Hanita on the Western Galilee, situated on a mountain slope overlooking the Mediterranean. While there he decorated the large glass windows of communal dining hall with drawings.

Dan Partouche started drawing from young age, but formally the beginning of his artistic career was exactly 50 year ago at the year 1961.

As a member of the Association of Painters in Israel, he participated at an important exhibition and his name was mentioned for the first time in the News Papers Art Critique as a very talented and promising artist.

As a result he received a scholarship from the Israeli Ministry of Culture to study art at the Avny Institute of Art in Tel-Aviv and then at Saint Martins School of Art in London.

1962-64 at age 26 studied at Avny Institute of Art in Tel-Aviv and while studying there he was part of a group of young Israeli painters whose works were influenced by the master Zaritsky, Streichman and Stematsky.

1966 study at the Saint Martins School of Art in London, studied art and serigraphy, then returned to Israel and taught at the Center for Art Studies in Hadera, a satellite of Tel-Aviv University.

1978-82 lived and worked in Paris. 1979 Won First Prize for a painting in an Art Competition organized by the Centre Malraux, Paris.

1990 Dan Partouche, an Israeli artist of French origin, with a cosmopolitan personality, discovered that he has also a Japanese soul. It happened when the president of Sanwa Corporation was impressed by the artist's pastels in the ArtExpo New York International Exhibition.
He liked the colors, the light, the softness and the optimism which the pastels reflected, so he decided to share his enthusiasm with the Japanese people.

Dan Partouche was invited several times to exhibit his works in different towns of Japan. Through the exhibitions and the contact with the Japanese people, Dan Partouche felt his affinities with the art, the calligraphy and the philosophy of Japan, in spite of the geographical distance between the two continents.

During his career Dan Partouche used different mediums such as oil, acrylic, water-color and pastel. The latter, which he has strong control over, was the best way to express his mature artistic concepts.

The soft pastel, pigments of multiple colors, enables the artist to draw the theme, at the same time develop and enrich the composition to its final completion. The integration of the warm and cheerful colors creates the marvelous, delicate and attractive harmony. The frequent appearance of geometrical elements in Dan Partouche's paintings contributes to the quality and the uniqueness of his works. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
