Benaroya was born in Istanbul, Turkey in1963.
He lived both in Israel and Kenya as a young man, before moving to South Africa.
It was in South Africa that he began to paint seriously and felt inspired to work on his art as a full-time profession.
Benaroya is a completely self-taught artist, and his scientific observation of natural phenomena is expressed in the purest, classical spirit. He enjoys improvising and experimenting with colors and texture, his works include a wide range of subjects in the still-life tradition.
He favors Judaica, Wildlife, Animal Portraits and Classical Still-life.
Albert returned to Israel, with his wife in 1997 where he now lives and works. He is inspired by the tradition and beauty of his homeland and has found a refreshing, spiritual connection with Israel.
