Biography

Dan Groover’s quest has always been to deliver soulful messages through his art as it adapts universal dimensions to contemporary techniques and themes which are accessible to all.  His vision translates into a ladder set on the ground of a labyrinth, positioned as a bridge between Heaven and Earth.  From this ladder, one can then perceive secret lines that link everything in perfect unity and harmony. 

Dan Groover found freedom of expression through hip-hop and graffiti painting by tagging the streets and subways of Paris at age fourteen.  He transformed his environment and the urban spaces through his art.  He then lived in the Caribbean, where he transitioned his street art from wall to canvas and created original artworks inspired by the new colours and modesty of his surroundings;  his immediate success in first exhibitions propelled him into the art world.   In the late 90’s, he returned to Israel. 

As an accomplished artists, he exhibits in many galleries in Jerusalem, Tzfat and Tel Aviv.  Some major projects throughout his artistic path include, 600 meter mural, stage design for James Brown, street art conferences over a two year period at LaGuardia school in New York City, TEDX TLV, commissioned artist for a portrait of Shimon Perez, and several international exhibitions in Europe, America and Israel. 

Since his return, he participated in various high profile events such as TEDx, International Light Festival of Jerusalem, Bienale, and recently participated in a live paint performance for the 70yrs of Israel. He also personally gifted a painting to Shimon Perez and also has a strong presence in the art gallery scene in both Jerusalem and TelAviv.

Today, Dan Groover's art is a new vision.  It combines a mix of bold street art and soulful messages. 

Dan Groover(דן גרובר) spent his childhood in Paris, France. Groover currently works in Jerusalem, Israel. His artistic career started in the eighties with the apparition of the urban French Hip-hop culture and found its own unique expression through Graffiti art. As it turned out, wall painting was a way to express his inspiration and creativity. In 1988, Groover moved his residence to the French West Indies where the change of scenery and the slower pace of life encouraged his painting to transfer from walls to canvases. Groover continued his art training in the Art School of Guadeloupe. Among his numerous accomplishments, one was for the stage design of the James Brown Caribbean tour. His works have been on display in various exhibitions in the West Indies, U.S, and France. However, in 1995, his move to Jerusalem sparked a new transition in his life and artistic approach. His studying in-depth has nourished his artistic creativity. Jazz and Hip Hop music, famous modern painters, dancers, American culture.

Dan Groover is a Franco-Israeli Artist and painter who has over time combined, his personal progress to the most modern techniques in his art work. In the 1980’s Groover began leaving his imprints around Paris and its suburbs by offering his original creations to passers-by.

The vivid colours and the bright light of the Caribbean, where he moved as a teenager, inspired him in his new creations. He completed several major projects inspired by the Carribbean, such as a wall fresco of six hundred meters around the Baie-Mahault stadium in Guadeloupe, artwork on building facades, movies and concerts sets, such as James Brown during his Caribbean tour.

It was then, that gradually Groover realized the transience of his artwork and at twenty years old, with the encouragement of his family, he began to expand and translate his work onto canvas, influenced by rhythmic creations including art pop and street music, as well as comics and imagery of New York city, its icons and lively boulevards, through its singers Acide-Jazz. He soon became one of the key artists of the Pop Art scene ranging over the Caribbean, New York and Paris. After visiting in New York, he wandered between street art, museums, rap concerts in Brooklyn, bohemian artists over the rooftops of Queens and teaching at the La Guardia Street Art School. He then returned to the West Indies with new dimensions of artistic perspectives.

Then, once he had become a fulfilled and established artist, Groover looked for a new meaning, an innovative edge to his artistic approach and decides to return to origins. It is in Israel, where he was born that Grover becomes Dan Groover.

When in contact with this land of many roots, he immersed himself in the study of ancient and esoteric texts from which he draws a visual world full of both Israeli culture and the sacred symbolism related to Judaism for his creations. Just like Jacob's ladder, placed as a bridge between Heaven and Earth, Dan Groover applies a universal dimension to contemporary techniques of his art that is meant to be accessible to all, employing the graphical language and the visual Pop Art and Street Art.
