Tuvia Beeri was born in 1929 in Topolcany, Czechoslovakia. In 1948 he immigrated to Israel. During the years 1961-63 he stayed in Paris and studied lithography at the Ėcole des beaux-arts. He is considered one of the leading printmakers in Israel. His favorite printing technique is aquatint.
Beeri has a meticulous care for detail while creating and destructing, exploding and merging luminous compositions of geometrical shapes in a personal language of form and color. Beeri had exhibitions in the US, Canada, South America, Australia, Germany, France and Israel.
The artist Ardon had said, “Beeri’s world is a world of imagination. But despite his leaning towards science fiction, he draws on the real world which surrounds us: on the geometric, the organic and the inorganic, on the machine, motion, light and on signs and symbols which are fused in nearly all his works. Here and there, as if from the depths of the forgotten past, a mysterious pyramid rises and a mountain range hovers like a fata morgana over an oasis.”
