Michael Druks, who died in London in April, was a significant figure in Israeli and European conceptual art circles in the 1970s. In the late 1960s, Druks was established as a leading young Israeli artist and decided to travel abroad. He arrived in Europe in the early 1970s, and after a period in Holland, settled in England in 1972 where he lived for the rest of his life and took British citizenship. Druks was known for his conceptual art practice involving video, collage, photography, performance and installation, although in recent years he focused almost exclusively on painting. England & Co worked with Michael for two decades, beginning with his participation in the gallery’s exhibition The Map is Not the Territory in 2002.
