Born on July 16, 1939 in Fez, Morocco, Amram Ebgi had parents who enrolled him in the "Young Immigration to Israel" program at age 12. He received his education at Kibbutz Kfar Blum School in Israel. At age 22, Ebgi was creating and selling art in high volumes in a Kibbutz showroom.
While visiting Israel, the president of the Brooklyn Museum of Art awarded Ebgi, then 26, a full scholarship to the Brooklyn Museum of Art scholar program in New York. At the museum he learned many techniques in oil and watercolor. He later studied at the Pratt Graphic Art Center in New York City where he gained an understanding of etching in addition to other mediums including: silk screen, intaglio relief, and epoxy modeling. Today, Amram Ebgi's works are exhibited at numerous art galleries, universities, and art museums throughout the world.
