Arie Azene was born in Germany in 1934. In 1958, after studying art in Paris, he settled on Kibbutz Tzova in the Judean Hills, where he lived for 28 years. He spent 1968-1970 in France, England and Germany. In 1984, he moved to Jerusalem.
Azene was influenced by the New Horizons group (their goal was to bring Israeli art to the world of art) to which he was exposed during his studies at the Avni Institute in Tel Aviv. Other influences were Joseph Zaritsky, Avigdor Stematsky and Yehezkel Streichmann.
Azene works in pencil and aquarelle. His early work was abstract, but over the years, it has become more figurative and realistic. His colour palette is often based on two complementary hues, with a predominance of various combinations of gray.
He has had many one man shows since 1960 in Israel, USA, France, Germany and Switzerland and his art has been exhibited around the world.
