Chaki was born in Athens, Greece, in 1938 and has been living in Montreal since 1963. His paintings retain the lushness of warmer climates and possess a vocabulary that speaks truthfully about the landscape as he sees it, whether it is in his mind or before his eyes.
Chaki’s work can be found in numerous public collections and institutions internationally, including Canadian embassies and consulates, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Royal Bank of Canada Collection, Musée de Toulon, France, and Jerusalem City Hall, Israel, among others. Chaki was head of the Painting and Drawing programs at the Saidye Bronfman Centre from 1967-1989.
