born in Jaffa. studied at Avni Institute, Bat Yam Institute of fine arts and got a scholarship from the Israeli Ministry of culture to study at the Cite Intrnational des Arts in France. 

Natif depicts in his work still life, which seems to have a delicate balance between the abstract and the concrete, infusing the realistic appearance of things with a deep feeling of the sublime.

Natif's painting is abundant with nuance. The texture are carefully created, weather on jar's surface, human body and the void that surrounding them. His painting reveal a simple existential order.
