Tobiasse Theo

Theo Tobiasse was born in Palestine in 1927 and brought to Paris as a child.

He created his earliest drawings before World War II, and spent the crucial years of his youth hiding from the Nazis in a Paris apartment. 

After the war he became a successful commercial designer until 1961 when he decided to devote his full attention to painting. 

Theo Tobiasse’s style of painting is highly sophisticated. Tobiasse’s technique is a painterly blend of surrealism, expressionism, and modern primitivism. 
His themes are literary, often biblical, and at times erotic. 

Tobiasse paintings seem to transcend history – fusing dreams, mythologies, biblical stories and his own past – into rich metaphors for the world of the present.

Today Tobiasse devides his time between New york and France.
