Born in Israel in 1949, learned chemistry engineering in the Israeli Polytechnic and was involved in research.
Carmeli began his art studies in 1977 and ever since paints, and presents exhibitions in Israel and around the world.

Silence is saturated in Carmeli's work, silence and figures. In his pieces, the figures, the landscapes and the inanimate objects are prominent. He defines the genre of his paintings as lyric realism: a paint that doesn’t imitate reality but rather refers to the "impression", the thought that embarked, to the memory-emotion.
He paints objects and people through observation, but what finally remains on the canvas, is what was fixed in his memory in the time his glance strays between the object and the canvas.
Jacob sees the subjects of his work as lacking clear outlines; those subjects communicate between one another through light and air. "The object isn’t limited by his boundaries; it keeps existing in the space through the light it sheds."
The language of his painting connects impressionistic past with times of the twenty first century. This is a connection of intellect, of sensitivity, of understanding that the art provides, and of a touching language.

His works of art can be found in many important museums and collections in Israel and throughout the world.
