Yohai Levy was born on 17 March 1966 in Beersheba. In 1988 Yohai was severely injured in a motorcycle accident. Since then, he has been completely unable to use his hands and feet. Shortly afterwards, he made his first attempts at mouth painting. He derived great pleasure from it and therefore mouth painting became a fundamental part of his life. Only three years after his accident he received a scholarship from the Association which enabled him to concentrate intensively on his artistic activity. In 2000, he became an Associate Member of the AMFPA. Yohai Levy received a lot of support such as painting lessons from the Israeli publishing house, in order to make progress with the painting.
