Born-1939 as Abdulla Alkara in
Daliat El- Carmel, Israel. Studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. he traveles between Israel, Paris, New- York, Germany and the Netherlands.


Alkara's artistic journey began in his youth, when he resided in the artists' village, Ein Hod, where he was exposed to the works of leading modernist Israeli artists such as Mokadi, Rudi Lehmann and Marcel Janco.

Alkara's range of style developed over the years from oriental paintings of his Druse home town to neo- expressionism and neo- fauvism.


Alkara's art works reflect his search for artistic expression, his use of colors and dynamic brush movement create dense and rich compositions which distinguished by ornamental patterning of oriental carpets.
