About

1951 Born in Tel Aviv, Israel Since graduating from the Fine Art Academy in Florence, Italy and his return to Israel, Griffit presents a fascinating and unique journey from etchings to realistic paintings, combining abstract textures with realistic images. Griffit is a collector of images from any source possible, history of art, advertisements, movies, childhood memories, nature and the Land of Israel, self-conscious nostalgia, second hand longing etc. His paintings, created as a collage, expropriating natural environment and connecting the image to something more, ranging from images, associations and a calligraphic stream of consciousness. The painting looks like a stage, some lit, some focused, some in darkness and partly implicit. “Painting at its best is similar to poetry, sometimes lean and precise, sometimes hearty and vague. I have no preferences, I want to be surprised with myself every time and curiosity drives me back to the studio every day.” Griffit lives and works in Israel. Griffit has exhibited at museums and galleries around the world including Art Basel, the International Biennial of Graphic Art in Italy, Yugoslavia, Germany, Austria and Norway.
