Drawing on the mystical traditions of Kabbalah, or mystical Judaism, he is known for combining antiquity, modern Israel, and mystical imagery into his work. Likewise a teacher, Ardon is a professor at one of Israel’s premiere art colleges, Bazalel from 1935-1952. In 1954 he is awarded the UN’s UNESCO Prize for his contribution to the world of arts and culture.
