Samuel Bak

Painter Samuel Bak expresses in his works his traumas as a holocaust survivor. His style is a form of surrealism. His themes deal with deep theological questions. Here we see one of his numerous paintings which "mention" the Magen David, The Ghetto, which interprets the Yellow Badge in a new light.
