Born in Greece, of Israeli decent, and a Canadian resident since 1967, Yehouda Chaki's work draws on the many varied environments he has experienced. He works mainly with andscapes and still lifes: lush, colourful scenes with forceful line work and expressive brush strokes. His paintings are easily recognizable and are alive with emotion, visual drama, and clarity of colour. His expressive landscapes and still lifes are emotive testaments to his enduring talent. Chaki's work is in the permanent collections of over seventy-five museums and corporations including The Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Musée D'art Contemporain de Montreal, Fort Lauderdale Museum; Florida, Eretz Israel Museum; Israel, Musée de Toulon; France, and the Museo de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
