Born in the artists' village of Ein Hod. In his youth he was an assistant of Marcel Janco, Avraham Bazak and Uri Lifshietz. 

Ben Dov is  a multi- disciplinary artist; he uses all kinds of artistic medias such as painting, sculpture, Video-art and installations, all creating a primordial world that has a deep connection to the earth, to nature and to Israeli symbols.

Ben Dov's images stir up memories of ancient folktales and primeval landscapes and make them an integral part of our contemporary environs.
Ben Dov stirs feelings of goodness, beauty, and deep roots, constituents that encourage a more optimistic outlook toward the future.
