Arie Aroch (in Hebrew אריה ארוך; born 1908 - October 15, 1974) was an Israeli painter, recipient of The Israel Prize for Painting.
Arie Aroch, (Nisselevitch), painter, born 1908, Kharkov, Russia. Arie Aroch, though a member of the "New Horizons", suggested an alternative to lyric abstraction, proposing a greater concentration on form; personal statement instead of objectivity; unconventional techniques instead of methodical professionalism, and a more eclectic approach instead of French abstractionism. Aroch's sources include children's drawings, found objects, folk and traditional characters, and persons remembered from childhood. His thought and techniques (erasing, scratching, scribbling) influenced young painters such as Aviva Uri and Raffi Lavie.
