b. 1942
Pinhas Cohen Gan, an Israeli painter and sculptor, was born in 1942 in Meknes, Morocco. In 1949 he immigrated to Israel. From 1967 to 1970 he studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art. During the 1970s, Cohen Gan created a number of other exhibits and conceptual activities, including the Dead Sea Project, Touching the Border, or activities at the Jericho refugee camp, combining the social, political, and ecological dimensions of the art. In addition to the artistic discussion, his works express metaphorical allegories of alienation, rejection and life in a hostile reality. The paintings and sculptures created by Cohen Gan from the late 1980s, focus on the human figure and anonymity, and use philosophical terms and Ars poetics. The works are made in combinations of different techniques and in an expressive style. Many of Cohen Gan's works are part of a large series of works, including various variations on both formal and ideological issues. Alongside his artistic work, Cohen Gan has created a number of studies and texts that combine aspects of the aesthetics, sociology and philosophy of art.
