The talented multidisciplinary artist Ya’akov Boussidan was born in Port Said, Egypt, a melting-pot of cultures and languages. When he was ten, he immigrated with his parents to Israel. After 40 years dividing his life and creative work between London and Israel, artist Ya’akov Boussidan returned to Israel in 2011 to establish his studio in Tzur Hadassah, a village near Jerusalem.
