Nissan Engel is an Israeli artist best known for his mixed-media paintings and works on paper. Engel’s imaginative use of collage and painted forms create lyrical compositional arrangements, reminiscent of Paul Klee and Max Ernst. Born in 1931 in Haifa, Israel, he went on to study art at the Beaux-Arts Bezalel in Jerusalem and theater design at the Centre Dramatique del’Est in Strasbourg, France. The artist lived in Paris throughout the 1950s, moving to New York, NY in 1965 where he met and was influenced by Abstract Expressionist painters. Today, Engel’s works are in the collections of the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, the Detroit Institute of Arts, The Jewish Museum in New York, and the Bridgestone Museum in Tokyo, among others, as well as the Global Spheres Center.
