This site, in permanent construction, allows the viewer to appreciate the beauty, depth and variety of the visual and plastic arts created by Jewish artists of Latin America. The site includes drawing, painting, sculpture, tapestries and the hybrid concept known as installations.
The majority of the artists are Argentineans, in part, because it is the Latin American country with the largest Jewish population. Buenos Aires, especially, has a solid tradition in art production and education, favored by the influx of a large number of immigrant artists. It is also the place where we have the best access to the artists studios.
Artists from Uruguay, Peru, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia and Brazil are also figure prominently on this site. We hope to soon increase the number of artists and countries.
The artists included here identify themselves as Jews, whether devout or not. Some of them work on specifically Jewish themes: family life, holidays, immigration, the Holocaust, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and other religious ceremonies. Others, perhaps because of the command to not to make graven images, utilize more abstract forms in making Jewish art.

We hope you will enjoy of the Jewish Latin Art!
