Yohai Levi

Mouth Artist



Yohai Levi was born on 17 March 1966 in Israel.  In 1988 he 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 VDMFK.

Yohai Levy received a lot of support such as painting lessons from the Israeli publishing house, in order to make progress in painting. In the last few years, Yohai Levy has committed himself to work with young people. He gives talks in schools on the prevention of road accidents and on his special painting technique. He furthermore receives regular invitations from universities to talk about rehabilitation to psychologists and social workers. The favourite subjects of Yohai Levy are flowers and landscapes. He predominantly paints in watercolours. The mouth painter can look back on many exhibitions in his career as a painter.
