Edward Ben Avram was born in Bombay, India, in 1941 and immigrated to Israel as a teenager. He graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in 1965 and continues to make his home in Jerusalem. Ben Avram is an Israeli artist who lives and breathes Jerusalem. His spiritual muse is depicted in Jewish lifestyle, holidays, tradition and above all, the special light coming from the city of prophets, his beloved Jerusalem, with its arched alleyways, steep narrow streets, spires, citadels and gates in the walls of the ancient city. Ben Avram’s artwork stimulates the imagination and captures the heart.
