Art of Saul Balagura
Born in Cali, Colombia, the Jewish artist had his first solo exhibition at age seventeen. Throughout his life, he has moved in parallel universes of arts and sciences. The self-taught artist holds a M.D. from Universidad del Valle , a Ph.D. in Psychology from Princeton University, and a Neurosurgery degree from Albert Einstein Medical Center . In 1994 he retired from the world of science and opened a studio. His expressionistic work is a direct result of the interaction of his background with artistic influences from artists as varied as Willem de Kooning, Eduardo Guayasamin, el Greco, Pablo Neruda and Gabriel García Márquez. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States.
