Kataj is a major figure on the post-war international art scene. His retrospective at the Tate in 1994 generated argument and discussion. In over 30 years as a successful artist, he has explored the relationship between the visual and the poetic, taken references from high literature and popular culture, represented heroic figures and struggled to develop an iconography of post-Holocaust Jewish identity.
