History:

Dan Reisinger was born in Yugoslavia in 1934 to a family of painters. His early life was filled with adversity including losing most of his family to the Holocaust. He immigrated to Israel at the age of 15. While he was living in a transit camp, a government delegation noticed his paintings and urged Reisinger's father to send him to Bezalel, Israel's well-known art and design school.

As a graphic designer Reisinger won the first prize for a poster he designed for "Expo 58" in Brussels, Belgium, and he is featured as one of the 52 top graphic designers from 10 countries in the book "Top Graphic Designers." Reisinger has designed more than 200 social, political and cultural images as well as more than 150 logos that are familiar symbols in Israel. For the Museum of Modern Art in New York he designed a perpetual cutout calendar.

In the 1960s he set up a design studio in Tel Aviv where he helped to design the Israeli Pavilion at Expo '67 as well as create a body of work for El Al Airlines. Reisinger is one of Israel's most accomplished graphic designers.

Among his best-known artistic works are a wall relief at Yad Vashem and 52 paintings that illustrate the martyrdom of the Jewish people. The latter, also made as serigraphs, are on permanent exhibit at the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Israel. The outcomes of his career have been recently collected in a comprehensive exhibition at Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest that toured around Europe and included in Icograda design hall of fame
publication – “Masters of the 20th Century”.

In 1998 he was awarded the 1998 Israel Prize, first designer to be the recipient of such an award, exactly 40 years after his first award, the 1958 Brussels Expo first medal for poster design.
