The Griffit Timeline

The importance of Joshua Griffit to the Israeli art scene cannot be measure.

Always changing in the quest for original voice and never following the current streams of acceptable contemporary fashions.

A pioneer in new realism at a time when the real & figurative were overshadowed in Israeli contemporary for persuit after the conceptual and minimal in art.

Griffit curated the first group show of Contemporary Realism in Israel (1981) and was apart of "Radius" (1982-1984), the biggest collective group & gallery to show in Tel Aviv.

For his constant distinction and contrast to "Arte Povera" Adam Baruch coined the phrase: "Joshua Griffit: a majority of one in Israeli art".

Today, Griffit is being rediscovered by new audiences and galleries, while he continues to create new works daily, posting his paintings on social media.
