Shmuel Engel, known by his artistic name, Malachi, Born in Mezocast, Hungary. Immigrated to Israel in 1946 and settled in Jerusalem. Six years after the move to Jerusalem he opened one of the first galleries for avant-garde painting in Jerusalem. Over the years he opened more galleries in Tel Aviv, the USA and in Canada.


For over 50 years Malachi has been working passionately, in solitude and in near-underground secrecy, as if external to the local scene. Being an observant Jew, who is primarily influenced by music and sound. that became the key themes of his work over the last five decades.

Even today, in his advanced age, he continues to draw with passion. And in the galleries he owns in
Israel and abroad, he continues to exhibit the works of painters for whom art is their life and their faith.
