Amnon David Ar is a unique voice in today’s realistic painting scene. Born in Israel, in 1973, Ar began his formal art education at age 14, ultimately studying at the Bezalel Academy of Arts in Jerusalem. As he could not find at the Academy the artistic training he was looking for, he decided to leave and pursue his own artistic path. 

While being much of an autodidact, he sought advice from painters Oswald Adler and Abraham Bykov. Ar quickly gained recognition in his homeland and received his first chance at international level after his work was praised by the Rembrandt House Museum curator Dr. Bob van den Boogert, who marked Ar as one of the great draughtsmen of our time. This recognition, as well as winning the first Schiff prize for figurative painting at the Tel Aviv Museum, first prize winner at SeeMe competition NY, and 3rd prize winner at Boynes Emerging Artist Award Melbourne, led to numerous solo and group exhibitions  in Israel, Europe in Museums such as Tel Aviv Museum, Haifa Museum, Janco Museum, Bat Yam Museum, Ashdod Museum, the Kunsverein Worm and Schwezingen, Ramat Gan Museum , The Artists House Jerusalem, Museo Europeo de Arte Moderno and Arkansas Art Center.
