Painting and independent filmmaking absorbed Engel's attention during the twelve years between 1958 and 1970, until he became the founding director of the Abstract Experimental Animation on Film Department for the California Institute of the Arts. Jules Engel has received many honors for his art and, in 2001, he was further recognized as an ""Institute Fellow"" of CalArts. A prolific artist, Engel has worked in all media: paintings, films, drawing, sculpture and prints. His recent lithographs (1999-2002) reaffirm the sophisticated color palette and architectonic structure found in his abstract films. "
