About Amiram Eini

He was educated at Rudolf Steiner’s Primary and Lower Secondary School, and the Waizeen House where the focus was on Arts Theater and special education. In 1989 he studied at Elvebakken School of arts, a year later continued at Elisenberg School of Advanced Drawing, then in 1991 studied at Oslo’s School of Art, and in 1993/94 in Norwegian Arts and Craft School.

Immediately after graduating from Oslo’s School of Art he moved to Israel, and then to Paris, where he continued to work, drawing heavily from the influences the city had to bring.
