Eitan Barokas was born in New Jersey in 1995.
While he was surrounded by creativity and Art throughout his childhood, Eitan only began taking interest in creating while in his late high school years. Eitan's beginnings in Art quickly escalated from hobby to passion-as he painted for the fist time just a year before beginning college.
During his time at Emory University, Eitan majored in both Business and Interdisciplinary Studies-yet he quickly realized that he was painting just as much as he was studying. From a make-shift studio in his dorm room, to classrooms across campus, Eitan created art
constantly throughout his four years there.
The tipping point came in the Summer of 2016, when Eitan decided to set-up shop in New York City on SoHo's historic Prince Street, a place where many of his favorite Artists, both past and present, had emerged. That Summer test-run in SoHo served as the catalyst that dictated the path ahead:
In the year that followed, Eitan graduated from Emory and moved back to New Jersey
to puruse his dreams in Art.
Since then, Eitan held his debut, solo-show, Yesterday, featuring 30 original works in New York City in 2018, as well as participating and curating in group shows across
New Jersey and Manhattan regularly.
All throughout and in-between, he has privately sold original paintings, limited edition prints, and commissions to collectors.
Most recently, one of his paintings, 'Bloom', was acquired by Emory University's
Institute of Liberal Arts.
