TICO TIMES (COSTA RICA) -- Zigi Ben-Haim was born in 1945 in Baghdad, Iraq, and had to flee with his family to Israel, the place where he became immersed in art during his teenage years and graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts in 1970. Later on, he studied at the California College of Art in Oakland and the San Francisco State University, where he began developing his artistic style using a mixed media technique combining shiny, lightweight aluminum panels with layers of canvas, paper and paint to create a sense of disproportion.
