Meir Amar
Meir Amar was born in Israel in 1979 and grew up in the ancient “Machne Israel” neighborhood in Jerusalem. He inherited his talent for drawing and passion for the arts from his father, the artist Mommy Amar.

When Meir Amar joined his military duty, Commander Benny Gantz, former chief of staff, recognized his great potential to paint murals in army bases as part of an art and cultural program. Meir became the official artist of the Israeli Defense Forces and his murals can be seen in many of the bases all over the country.

Meir Amar is a graduate of the School of Arts "Bezalel" Jerusalem. Immediately after graduating he won a full scholarship to study art at the “Israel Museum” and worked under the guidance of artist Mark Yanai. Meir is known for his large scale paintings and strong use of color; he combines expressionist and figurative genres with Jewish spiritual elements in his work.

Meir Amar's works of art are shown worldwide and have left their mark in London art centers, museums, galleries and private collections around the world.

Over the years his work has been exhibited in:
The Jewish Quarter - Jerusalem
Gush Katif Museum
