Victor Chab


Biography from RoGallery.com

Born in Buenos Aires the 6 of September of 1930, Victor Chab did work that was featured in 90 individual exhibitions and was in in more than 200 collective exhibitions in the Argentina and abroad.

In 2002, a retrospective had phases from "Apple on the Table" (1947), award-winning book by Berni and Victorica that connected his surrealism with the notion of automatism or starting the work without prior ideas, without any sketch, which has not ceased to adhere.
