___________________________________________________________________

Víctor Chab nació en la ciudad de Buenos Aires, el 6 de septiembre de 1930, en el seno de una familia de inmigrantes judíos. Nacidos en Damasco, luego de un breve paso por Cuba, sus padres se instalaron en la Argentina donde se dedicaron al comercio. A los trece años, apenas salido de la escuela primaria, Chab ya había definido su vocación por la pintura. Autodidacta, asistió a diversos talleres -brevemente al de Cecilia Marcovich y Demetrio Urruchúa- hasta que conoce el taller libre MEEBA (Mutual de Estudiantes y Egresados de Bellas Artes) donde ejercita el oficio. En 1947 obtiene el Segundo Premio del XXVI Salón Anual de MEEBA, por la obra “Manzana sobre mesa”. En 1952 realiza la primera exposición individual en la galería Plástica de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, comenzando así una larga trayectoria, exponiendo tanto en Argentina como en el exterior. En 2001, exhibe pinturas en la galería Rubbers. Estas obras altamente figurativas ponen en escena varios de los temas que Chab ha tratado en su larga carrera: automatismo versus imagen, representación versus delirio.

__________________________________________________________

Victor Chab was born in the city of Buenos Aires, on September 6, 1930, in a family of Jewish immigrants. Born in Damascus, after a brief step through Cuba, his parents settled in Argentina where they worked in commerce. At thirteen, just after leaving elementary school, Chab had already defined his vocation for painting. Self-taught, he attended several workshops – especially that of Cecilia Marcovich and Demetrio Urruchúa – until he meets the free workshop MEEBA (Mutual of Students and Graduates of Fine Arts) where he exercises the trade. In 1947 he obtained the Second Prize of the XXVI Annual MEEBA Salon, for the work “Apple on table”. In 1952 he made the first individual exhibition in the Plastic Gallery of the city of Buenos Aires, thus beginning a long career, exhibiting both in Argentina and abroad. In 2001, he exhibits paintings in the Rubbers gallery. These highly figurative works put on stage several of the topics that Chab has dealt with in his long career: automatism versus image, representation versus delirium.
