Moreno Pincas, born in Sofia in 1936, is a Franco-Israeli painter.

He emigrated to Israel in 1949. He studied at the Avni Art Institute in Tel Aviv from 1958 to 1960 and in 1960 won the First Prize of the Biennale of Young Painters at the Museum of Modern Art in Haifa.

He obtained a Scholarship from the America Israel Cultural Foundation and then settled in Paris where he studied at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.

Moreno PINCAS depicts life. Noisy, agitated. With a critical and tender eye, he sketches existence as if it were a play and each time tells us a new story made up of meetings and lively discussions. He elevates life to the rank of fable. His paintings are full of colorful, alert beings who bustle about within a vast farce. By means of a rich pictorial material in flamboyant colors where reds and greens compete with deep blues, he brings the human being into existence and elevates it to the rank of icon, captured in close-up, anchored to existence by the hassles and the daily hubbub. The artist merges the genres of painting: he is a history, landscape, portrait and still life painter. A naturalist of the human soul that he dissects and examines with his brush. All brought together in one single picture ! Caught up in the whirlwind of life, does man ever have a moment’s respite? If the painter observes his fellow human beings closely, he must withdraw from the world to create in solitude. Concentration is the key to his art. So Moreno Pincas invites us into his cabinet of curiosities. A thousand objects rub shoulders with living beings. Everyone finds their place and the object is as lively as humans and animals. This is the magic of painting… And we listen attentively as the painter tells us a new story of painting… sonorous, vibrant, abundant, like existence itself.
