Born in 1942, immigrated to Israel from Iraq in 1951 as a 9 year old boy.
Some of the basics of painting he studied at the Avni Institute, but he did not persist in acquiring professional opinion and preferring the treasury in his own right. for this, Sarah Braitberg wrote in "Davar", "... a phenomenon in Israeli painting, with a rare and very expensive intuition. Yigal Zalmona wrote: "... Draw from the serious in the artists of this generation".
Already in 1975 he got to a solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
At the end of the 1960s and during the 1970s, his work focused on characters taken from life in the village and from imagination. They wore different shapes and shapes, sometimes human figures and sometimes birds, fish and other naive characters.
In the later period, the layers of paint became thick and then a cross moved and scratched into the paint to give it depth.
His lifestyle and works seem simple. In his works he expresses his feelings mainly to the person and the landscape from the confusion of his imagination, his language and his personal prism. In his works he reveals a rich and varied inner world, his soul and his desire to seek his truth without coquetry or an attempt to please.
His landscape paintings are beautiful, the trees are intertwined with them, browns, grays and greens, in a kind of fog with red roofs rising from them. Sometimes he would cut the cloth as if he wanted to create something else, maybe a blacksmith, perhaps a puzzle, everything in perfect harmony.
He has exhibited in many important exhibitions, including the Tel Aviv Museum and the Tefen Museum.
His works are found in many important collections in Israel and abroad.
