Born in 1952, Israel. Reeb studied Art at Bezalel and taught art in several workshops and art schools. He also curated an exhibition of journalistic photography taken in the Territories. Reeb’s paintings which sail through a vast spectrum are influenced by mass culture. They are constructed on a modernistic greed but assemble landscape, commercial logos and are based on the pictures taken by renowned photographers who document the wrongdoings of the Occupation.
In his works from the Eighties Reeb took painting as a critical instrument, incorporating the political, economical and historical with the abstract and minimalist doing of art. In the recent years he shows together abstract paintings and figurative ones. “I am considered a political artist, and it is still the heart of my artwork” he testifies.
The inspiration to his art comes from the British comics and cartoons, an echo to his childhood in England, through great artist such as Hans Haacke on one hand, and Goya and Rembrandt on the other. Nowadays, he also browses the web for inspiration. His works are hung in important Israeli and international museums and are part of many private and public collections around the world.
