Joseph Drapell

Drapell was born in the small occupied town of Humpolec, near Prague, in 1940 and immigrated to Halifax in 1966 in search of western freedoms. He developed his compression technique in the late 1960s and founded the Museum of New New Painting in 1998, devoted to exhibiting advanced art. Drapell's artwork is in national and international collections including the Guggenheim, the National Gallery in Prague, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the British Museum, and others.
