Shlomo Alter, 1936 -

He came to Israel in 1948 and during high school he started to study painting under the painter Aaron Avni. Two of his works in soft pastels took part in the Unicef's World Touring Exhibition of young painters. During the sixties, he was sporadically guided in painting by the worldwide known painter Marsel Yanko, also a family relative. In 1975, he decided to dedicate himself entirely to his art work. Since then, he has held many one man shows and has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and Israel.
