Born in Afghanistan, and immigrated to Israel with his parents in an early age. As a youth he was engaged as a silversmith and craftsman, and for many years taught art in Jerusalem.

The personal language of Bezalel which developed in his sculptures, seeks a new organization of masses in space, whose point of departure is the human image. Bezalel admits that in his work he has always aspired towards harmony, beauty, revealed to the eye of the beholder.

"The individual does not exist per se in the work of Aharon Bezalel. The sculpture's point of departure is the pair. Two are a couple; two are woman and the embryo forever in her belly (if we do not see the baby, then an extended pelvis bears the tiding of pregnancy). In Aharon Bezalel's work, one eternally bears the potential of two, if not three: a kernel splits into man and woman, with with the child within. One is also a multitude: whenever the individual is revealed in a group, he will invariably seek to cluster and huddle together. Clearly, the principle of modular assembly, applying to a cons\cedrible portion of Aharon Bezalel's sculptures, is a necessary consequence of this concept of unity and plurality. For to him, modulaer assembley is an act of fertilization or self defense".

-Gideon Ofrat, Aharon Bezalel: between Unity and Natural Increase.
