Home Araten Harry

Harry Araten (1936-2001) was born in Casablanca, Morocco. Lived and studied in New-York between the years 1940-1968, and moved to Israel in 1968. Since 1965 he exhibited internationally. He was a published author and an illustrator of children’s books and young adult books. Some of the published credits of Harry Araten include Seven Animal Stories for Children, Essential Jewish Trivia Book for Kids, A Child’s First Book of Jewish Holidays. He was also an accomplished and widely exhibited watercolorist and serigrapher. Artist’s philosophy “The elements of nature that surround us, both physically and metaphysically, should sooth us. Instead, we destroy the essential beauty and basic peace of our environment. We enclose ourselves in many needless rules and regulations. Choice is limited by our narrow-mindedness and selfless pursuit of absurdities. Humanity, as represented by the suited form and by the hopes of the angelic alter-ego, optimistically, but with an underlying sorrow, continuously searches. Searches with an unswerving single-mindedness for happiness during survival on a dwindling planet. Symbols of this search include balloons and butterflies, rising as high as imagination and spirit wills. My art is oblique; I point rather than slash so that my philosophy is revealed slowly, in a measured manner. In this way, the viewer reaches intellectual conclusions that are deeply and continuously felt. My art offers philosophical rhythms that flow to their conclusions.” read more
