Born in Haifa, Israel. a graduate of Hamidrasha art academy.

Hagai Argov's painting summons the viewer to a discussion about live, about the essence of the action of art, about history and object. His act of art is complicated. Its starts outside by acceding to a discarded object. an object that has been removed from its original goal. Argov's works hold turbid colorfulness which starts with light and color and ends up differently. The shape starts as landscape and continues its way into loosing shape, or on to another discussion about abstract.

Argov's works deal with casual banal while creating a complicated ambivalent system about the subject, there is a feeling that the landscape has been disturbed and out of the internal chaos, something different is coming up, elusive, a secret leveling its way but is being blocked, reveling and vanishing.

- Effi Gen, "Landscape is Like a Spring- Bord, an EngineThat Warms Up for a Drive".
