Eran Shakine was born in 1962 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

He is an Israeli artist, painter, illustrator and sculptor. Between the years 1986–1993, Shakine lived in New York, where he was granted fellowship of “Art Matters” and was the assistant to CoBrA avant-garde movement artist, Karl Appel. 

In his works, Shakine creates bold portraits which present prominent culture figures in unusual situations and contexts, among them: Freud dozing in his famous armchair, Picasso frying an egg; Pete Mondrian crossing the ocean in dog paddle swimming style.  Shakine’s art always engages in the same subject, even though his artworks look different from one another.

His works are displayed in the permanent collection of the “British Museum” in London, the Ludwig Museum in Germany, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel Museum, Tefen Open Museum, Herzliya Museum and Ein Harod Museum.
