Avihai Cohen, born 1963, an autodidact painter from childhood, came to independent art only at the beginning of the 21st century after going through a series of back operations, in which the last one left his left leg disabled. At the previous period of his life, Avihai owned a studio for design and illustration. As of the 21st century he became a wholly dedicated painter and artist. Premiere exhibition “Moment of Grace” was exhibited at Amalia Arbel Gallery, 2003. Several other group and single exhibitions were to follow since.
