About Avri Ohana

Avri Ohana was born in Casablanca, Morocco and immigrated to Israel at the age of 13. Raised and educated in a kibbutz, he absorbed the magic of the land and the lessons of the artists who lived there: the prominent European Dadaist Marcel Janco; Dan Hoffner, the director of Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem; the painter Eric Brauer of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism; and the acclaimed optical and kinetic artist Yaakov Agam in Paris.

As a young man, Ohana was an early member of Ein Hod, located at the foot of Mount Carmel. It was there that he developed his unique voice as an artist. Since then, he has also traveled and worked extensively in Europe, Latin America and the United States, where he now lives.

Ohana's exhibitions include solo and group shows in Israel, Europe and the United States. He has also created set designs for the Haifa Theater in Israel and the Grand Opera in San Francisco, and graphic designs for ABC Television in Hollywood. Presently, Avri Ohana lives and works in New York City.
