Yehezkal Streichman was born in Kovno, Lithuania in 1906. Streichman emigrated to Palestine to begin his art education at the influential Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. There he would study art and architecture, and continue his studies in Paris and Florence.
It was painting that Streichman would receive the most notoriety and accomplishment for. He became a member of the modernist art group “New Horizons” in the 1940s. This group style was often referred to as lyrical abstraction, with his signature style of applying thick layers of paint in succession with rich vibrant colors.
Yehezkal Streichman taught art throughout his life, starting in the Kibbutz’s in the 1930s and 40s, and then at the Avni Institute in Tel Aviv until 1979.
His style had a profound effect on the younger artists of the day, and was recognized internationally at the Venice Bienneale of 1948, 1954, and 1966.
Streichman received numerous awards during his life, receiving the Dizengoff Prize (1941, 1944, 1954, 1969), the Ramat Gan Prize (1956), The Moadon Milo Prize (1968) The Sandberg Prize for Israeli Art, awarded by the Israel Museum (1974), the Histradrut Prize (1986), and the Israel Prize (1990).
Yehezkal Streichman passed away in 1993 in Tel Aviv, and would have a street in his old neighborhood in Tel Aviv named after him acknowledging his impart of the arts.
