Yehuda Broitman
 
 

Yehuda Broitman Born 1956, in Odessa

Yehuda Britman now paints through the eyes of a man who lives in Israel. His oils on canvass capture a wide range of visual emotion from a dark and stormy sea juxtaposed against a grey and pink sky, to his elegantly simple still life entitled three apples 2001.

Yehuda Broitman transforms plain canvass into extraordinary art with a passion that leaps straight from his soul and an eye that perceives what many other artists are blind to.

Here is what different personalities of the art world have said about Yehuda Broitman:

Dr. A, Borosky, a world-known authority on contemporary art, who has lectured on this subject in such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Christie’s School, London; the University of Southern California:

“This is probably the first time that an artist of textural trend, knowing the rules of deconstruction games, is so literally, fully, appetizingly tied to a texture…” (from Dr. Borosky’s essay in the catalog of Broitman’s one-man exhibition, Ludwig Museum, Russian State Museum).

J. Taylor Basker, professor of art history (who curated an exhibition of  Yehuda Broitman’s work in the Monserrat Gallery, Soho, New York) :

"Yehuda Broitman brings a vision to his art that combines the realities of both the seen and the unseen. His art springs from contradictions, from deep emotion and from the unconscious. Unique in his honest search for expressive form, he refuses to be bound to one style, one school of painting. Broitman paints simultaneously in both a free, loose abstract style and a disciplined, intense realism, which ruthlessly studies the world of appearance in minute detail. Broitman sees no conflict between alternate realities, both of which are aspects of a single truth… Broitman presents a vast landscape of apples and cloth that overwhelms the viewer with power and craftsmanship… He paints with the skill of an old master transported into an age of doubt and search” (from J. Taylor Basker’s essay for the catalog of YoYehuda Broitman’s exhibition in the Monserrat Gallery).

Anita Arkin Steckel (an accomplished Master, from whom Willem De Kooning has purchased five works of art, and of whom he has said that her work is a “cat’s meow”):

“When you teach, you try to plant a seed. In Yehuda Broitman I saw this seed begin to floYehudash and grow beyond my wildest expectations” (from the preface by Anita Arkin Steckel to a catalog for YoYehuda Broitman’s one-man exhibition in the Russian Museum of Ethnography, St. Petersburg).

Olga Savitsky holds a doctorate in art and theater criticism, and has long been known in St. Petersburg intellectual circles: “Yehuda Broitman’s energy and inner dynamism are naturally attractive, as in anything which is full of life. His biography and artistic life make up an non-stop spiritual fabric with its florid and intriguing ornaments, which are nevertheless placed on a solid, reliable and quiet material matter” (from the essay by Olga Savitsky, for the catalog of  Yehuda Broitman’s one-man exhibition in the Anna Akhmatova Museum, St. Petersburg).

Dorit Kedar holds a Ph. D. in Creative Arts from the Union Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a writer, artist, and a well-known curator in Israel and abroad: “Vitality juts out of the surfaces, a continuous flow of colorful energy. Change is imminent, palpitating, breathing, exhaling… The spectator senses the artist’s genuine contentment in the process of painting… A witness of all the living with his eye and heart. The paintings are made by a conquering soul who well senses limitations and Freedom” (from the preface by Dorit Kedar to a catalog of Yehuda Broitman’s one-man exhibition in the Russian Museum of Ethnography, St. Petersburg).

Yehuda Broitman has held one-man shows in:

Ludwig Museum, Russian State Museum, St. Petersburg (the show was curated by Dr. A. Borosky, head of the Contemporary Department. Dr. Borosky has curated one-man shows of other well known artists, classics in their lifetime: Joseph Beuys, Zigmar Polke)
