He immigrated to Israel in 1935, where he attended university and began painting, studying with Streichman and Stematsky. In 1948, he comes to work in Paris, where he settles, and follows the courses of the School of Fine Arts. He participated in numerous group exhibitions, notably in Paris: Salons des Réalités Nouvelles from 1959 to 1963, the Independents, the Great and Young People of Today, Comparisons, as well as the Biennale of Menton in 1955, the Biennale of Sao Paulo in 1961 He has also exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum, the Modern Art Museum in Haifa, the Modern Art Museum in Paris, the Art Institute in Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal. The Musée de Vesoul in 1988 and the Musée Israélien de Paris in 1993-1994 devoted retrospective exhibitions to him, as did the Lelia Mordoch gallery in Paris in 1991,1993,1995,1998. From a tormented figuration, he evolved towards abstraction in the fifties. Worked with a knife, with violence, the colors bloom in a luminous composition. Lines, lines overlap, collide, perfectly mastered.
