Born and raised in a kibbutz in northern Israel to a Swiss father and an Israeli mother, he enjoyed, in his words “a complex but boundary-less childhood”. A turning point was during his services in the Israeli military where, of all places, he was exposed to the power of creativity and the art of teaching.
After his service, he immigrated to Switzerland and chose the unique path of an art apprenticeship with the Scottish artist Andrew James Ward, and the Korean artist Cathy Choi.
Subsequently, he opened his own studio where he started teaching, something that he continues today in various forms in Switzerland and Europe.
After exhibitions in chosen museums and galleries in Zurich, Geneva and London, his works are now placed in numerous private collections across Europe and the Middle East.
