I was born in 1955 in Jerusalem Israel as the first son of Meriam and Nahum ben Hur. My mother was a graduate of the Bezalel school of art in Jerusalem were she learned special weaving in classical methods. She encouraged me with painting from a young age, my father was a professor of plastic surgery. I did my schooling in Jerusalem and during high school I studied a combination of realistic and humanistic studies, later during the army service I became an infantry officer. After the army I began studies of architecture in the Technion school of engineering in Haifa. What I want to say is that I never studied art. Today I am married to Hadasa and we have twin lovely children by the age of 9 years, Aviv and Yaniv. As an architect I dedicate my time to conservation of old buildings in Jerusalem from Muslim and Byzantine periods.
Regarding my art work, I continue to scatch and draw. I use a oil colors and also colored pencils. I have participated in a few group exhibitions.
This is Meriam ben - hur the dear mother of ehud ben - hur , that encouraged me from an early age to paint , and helped me
