Yehouda Chaki


Born in Greece, of Israeli descent, and a Canadian resident since 1967, Yehouda Chaki’s work draws on the many environments he has experienced. He works mainly with landscapes and still lifes – lush, colorful scenes with forceful line work and expressive brush strokes. His paintings are easily recognizable and are alive with emotion, visual drama, and clarity of color. His expressive landscapes and still lifes are emotive testaments to his enduring talent. Chaki’s work is in the permanent collections of over seventy-five museums and corporations, including The Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Musee d’Art Contemporain de Montreal, Fort Lauderdale Museum in Florida, Eretz Israel Museum, Musee de Toulon in France, and the Museo de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
