Eitan Portnoy's paintings draw their inspiration from Byzantine mosaics and icons, Persian miniatures, and arabesques.

He is the wandering raconteur, weaving together different epochs and religions; creating contemporary images whose symbols and characters are plucked from ancient myths and legends, and the stories of the bible.

An ex-television news broadcaster, his education includes:

Cinema & Theatre studies at Tel Aviv University
Commercial Art at New York Tech, NYC,
Photography & Painting at the School of Visual Arts

Religion & Theology, Jerusalem
Etching & Lithography at City & Guilds, London
