Pop Art - Street Art:  Dan Groover is well known for his Pop and Street Art series, rich in colours and visual depiction of Iconic figures.  These series were the natural transition from walls to canvas, and evolved through time and actuality.  Groover uses his own style and techniques through colours, graphic and visual languages of the world to create these unique artworks, often pushing the limits and dares audacity by creating mixes of morphology.

Pop Art Israel:  The best known series of Dan Groover’s artworks, where the art of storytelling of Israel bridges important historic moments and their influential leaders.  Creating combined techniques of collage, mix media and stencil work, give a strong message of who and what we stand for as a young Independent country.  

Jewish Mystical Art and Calligraffiti:  Dan Groover has deeply connected to the beauty of Jewish Mysticism and developed modern series of Judaica and Calligraffiti. His twist on Modern Jewish art sometimes reveals the hidden meanings of Secret Lines that connect all of humanity in unity. 

 


Detailed Biography

Dan Groover spent his childhood in Paris where his artistic journey  started at age fourteen.  In the beginning of the urban French Hip-Hop culture and underground Graffiti art scene, where painting in the streets and subways was a real danger, Groover found that this was the best opportunity to express his inspiration and creativity.  This was a short period before Agnes B. took on the initiative to make Street Art and Graffiti more accessible through fashion and presented young unknown graffiti artists, such as Jon One.

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, but quickly found that academia was not fitted for Street Art and Graffiti.   He was wooed by 5 stars hotels for solo exhibitions as he was a true pioneer in the Caribbean Street Art and Graffiti scene, which was new to all.  Among numerous high profile projects and events, he accompanied James Brown on his Caribbean tour and was solely responsible for stage design.  He also completed a 600 meter mural around the football stadium of Guadeloupe.  His experience in the caribbean, connected him to iconic figures, which are still  present in his current works.

In 1995, his return to Israel, it was a calling of purpose and sparked a new transition in his life and artistic approach. His in-depth studying of ancient esoteric texts nourished his artistic creativity.  As Jazz and Hip Hop music, Iconic figures, Superheroes, American cultural symbols and the city of New York were (and are still), among his favourite subjects to paint, he discovered the meaning of the Hebrew Letters and more spiritual messages which are today very present in his work.
