Jules Perahim was a Surrealist Romanian artist of Jewish origin. During the 1930s, his paintings and drawings remark themselves through a powerful fantastic vision, and a critical sense against an oppressive system of belief and power mechanisms. Taking refuge from antisemitic laws, he travels East in Moldova, Russia and Armenia, returning to Romania in 1945. For a significant period in the 1950s, Perahim contributed to the Socialist Realist style with forum art including public mosaic works and national book illustrations. In spite of his success during the communist regime, he craves more artistic liberty and leaves Romania for Paris, continuing to paint in Surrealist style. His explored themes relate increasingly to the symbiosis of the elements of life, the sensuality of form and matter, and universal communication. His oeuvre was the object of over forty exhibitions in France, and of many other exhibitions in international institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in Rome, the Museum of Art Jerusalem and the Venice Art Biennale.
