At the age of 78, Yoram Gil is an accomplished miniaturist, with a deep love for the Israeli landscapes, which he grew up in. Since the 70's he has been painting tiny watercolours that express his passion and love for these panoramas, packing feelings and longing into these wonderful bite-sized works of art, which can be displayed in a frame, and sometimes even worn as unique jewelry.
Today Yoram lives and paints in in his studio apartment in Kiryat Tivon, in the north of Israel.
