I live and work in Beer Sheva, Israel. I am a self-taught artist, without professional art education. I started drawing cars when I was 2 years old, my mother carefully keeps my childhood drawings. And now, 40 years later, I'm still doing what I love. My graphic artworks are made in the technique of ink graphics with elements of watercolor, in the style of old engravings and old advertising brochures. My style is based on detailed drawing and historical accuracy. The artworks are mainly devoted to the history of world motoring, the first auto-sports competitions (since the 1900s), old architecture and Formula 1 racing. My artworks are not copies of old photographs. The first motor racing events took place over 100 years ago and there is very little information about it. Work on one picture usually takes up to 2 months. Many hours of research and reference material to make sure I rebuild the car and environment exactly the way it was in that race. I always strive to depict historically accurately all the things and details of the event. I research archival documents, old photographs, publications and articles in newspapers of those years, and much more, to be sure that all elements of the picture correspond to the historical period: architecture, landscape, weather, specification and color of cars, clothes of drivers, mechanics and spectators, advertising, and so on. In addition, all fonts, logos and advertisements that were used in those years. Only after careful preparation, I start drawing. It takes a lot of patience, diligence and passion to paint such detailed artwork. Drawing such small details requires high precision and concentration.
