Born in Jerusalem, 1960.

In 1986, I graduated from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design where I met my wife Lena, Artist who paints wolves galloping through the streets of Jerusalem.

Born in 1992, Neta, our only daughter, currently studies animation at Bezalel’s Screen-Based Arts Department.

As of 2005, I serve as Chair of Agripas 12 Cooperative Gallery. Established by artists, the Gallery displays the works of 13 artists who devise, initiate and produce exhibitions and collaborations with other artists and art establishments.

The starting point for many of my paintings are photos I take of industrial buildings and construction sites. The paintings deconstruct what the camera records and reassemble it, mixing the concrete and the familiar with abstract elements, through which I search for new combinations of shapes and colors that echo a world hidden from the eye.
