I was born in 1964 and raised in Israel. In my early years as an artist, I focused on painting very realistic scenes, mainly urban life scenes and portraits.

I was once “blamed” for being an escapism artist. I guess that was said as an insult, but I take it as a praise. Isn’t creativity itself a form of escapism?

Escapism to me is a necessary part of the process of creating a work of art. That’s because in my eyes, good art is mainly breaking free from conventions. My paintings are mirrors of my soul.

I get my inspiration from the drama of life and nature, focusing more on the mood and color of a subject rather than its details.

I often find myself wandering around in nature where a tree, a cloud or even light and shadow can become the beginning of a new painting.

I paint with my eyes open but it is always my dreams that I’m painting, my soul and my emotions. I believe that my mission as an artist is to emphasize the beauty in life. Beauty and optimism go together.

By painting and showing the beauty that surrounds us I try to spread optimism, hope and harmony and make our world a better place.
