    A member of the Argentine Surrealist group Boa, Victor Chab has created a repertoire of fantastic beasts, many resembling enlarged insects or larva. Often he paints directly over tissue paper applied to the canvas in order to effect different textures. Self-taught in painting and printmaking, Chab served on the faculty of the Higher School of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, where he began exhibiting in local galleries in 1952. His work has been featured in over 90 individual exhibitions and 200 group exhibitions worldwide and can be seen (among other institutions) at the National Museum of Fine Arts of Buenos Aires; the Museum of Fine Arts of Caracas, Venezuela; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Panama; and the Museum of Modern Art of Latin America, Washington, D.C.
