Avraham Kan

Abraham Kan was born in Georgia in 1968.

Kan’s painting style is naive and tends towards comics with signs of grotesque. His humorous paintings contain scenes full of events, characters, sights and places, taken from his dreams, his childhood memories from the city of Batumi where he grew up, and also from the streets of Tel Aviv, the city where he lives. His palette is colorful and vibrant. He paints with warm, bursting and bright colors. His composition flattens the objects of the painting on the canvas, or the paper. Kan claims that his paintings correspond with the paintings of the great naive painters: Henri Rousseau, Paul Gauguin and Niko Pirosmani (1862-1918) (Georgian self-taught painter, who painted in the naive style and is considered the greatest of Georgian painters).

Kan is endowed with a fertile imagination and a rare sense for harmonious shapes and colors. This special combination of imagination, the ability to organize complex shapes and situations and precise color matching, gives his paintings a magical and unique poetic atmosphere. His pictures are flat. Kan has a great talent for telling us a story with seemingly simple means, with the help of shapes and colors that he unfolds before our eyes.
