Eran Shakine, A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew didn’t realize that happyness was following them for some time now, oil pastels on canvas, 90 x 120 cm
When we received this card from Eran Shakine’s exhibition at the Jewish Museum Berlin (28 October 2016 – 5 March 2017), we were immediately struck by his deep sense of humour. We even considered renaming our dog “Happyness”. In his large-scale drawings, Eran Shakine considers the similarities and differences between Muslims, Christians, and Jews, and, looking at this drawing, obviously there are none. We all want to be happy but are unable to recognize happyness when it is around.
Eran Shakine paints, draws, and creates sculptures and art in public spaces. He was born in Israel in 1962 to a French father and Hungarian mother, both of whom are Shoah survivors. Now he lives in Tel Aviv, New York, and London.
