Born in Topolcany, Czechoslovakia, painter-printmaker Tuvia Beeri emigrated to Israel in 1948 where he studied at the Oranim Art School with Marcel Janco and Jacov Wexler. He studied etching techniques with Johnny Friedlaender and lithography at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts Paris from 1961 to 1963. Upon his return to Israel in 1963 he taught for a year at the Bezalel School of Art, Jerusalem, and since 1964 he has taught etching at the Avni Institute of Art in Tel Aviv. He has been awarded several important prizes for his work including the Milo Prize in Tel Aviv (1969), and a gold medal at the Florence Biennale (1972). Since 1961 Beeri's work has been exhibited widely in Israel, France, and Germany as well as in New York, Luxembourg, and Zurich. The coloured construction of Beeri's abstracted ideas seem to relate to the fundamentals of landscape. As a review in Tribune de Geneve remarked:"Beeri's graphic poems consist of circles and clouds of shapes exploring and merging from ink black to the astral white all of them set in an infinite space. This is a boundless world which is nevertheless defined with strict geometry."
