Artist bio: Itzchak Tarkay (1935 – June 3, 2012) was an Israeli artist. Tarkay was born in 1935 in Subotica, on the Yugoslav-Hungarian border. In 1944, Tarkay and his family were sent to the Mauthausen Concentration Camp, until Allied liberation freed them a year later. In 1949, his family emigrated to Israel, living in a kibbutz for several years. Tarkay attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design from 1951, and graduated from the Avni Institute of Art and Design in 1956.
He held his first exhibition in 1961 at the Dugit Gallery in Tel Aviv.
His art has been featured in more than 50 exhibitions around the world including Israel, Hong Kong, Spain, France, Germany, the United States, and Japan.
After exhibiting both in Israel and abroad, Tarkay received recognition at the International Artexpo in New York in 1986 and 1987 for works in a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, and watercolor.
He has been the subject of multiple publications. These include: “TARKAY: Intimate Moments, an Exhibition at Park West Gallery” (1991), “Itzchak Tarkay: The Park West Paintings” (1994), “Tarkay Profile of an Artist” (1997), and “Tel Aviv Retrospective” (2012).
