Víctor Chab

 
 
 
 

Victor Chab was born in Buenos Aires city, September 6th in 1930. Chab had a clear calling for painting. Self-didactic, he was a member of many workshops – briefly at Cecilia Marcovich and Demetrio Urruchúa ́s – until he came across the free workshop MEEBA (mutual for students and graduated from Art). In 1947 he was awarded the second prize in the XXVI Annual Exhibition at MEEBA. The jury, composed of Antonio Berni and Miguel Carlos Victorica, among others, gave the prize to the piece “Apple on the Table”. In spite of having this early recognition, Chab – young and demanding – burnt all his work created in the years previous to his first exhibition. In 1952 he met Juan Andralis, pupil of the surrealist painter Battle Planas, with whom he became close friends with a deep intellectual understanding. He studied French to be able to read directly the texts by André Bretón and the surrealists who became his poetic referents.
