This is my painting titled “His Royal Badness”
and I’m giving it (16″x28″ limited edition Giclée print)
to you for free…
(Keep scrolling- I wanna tell you who I am first, so I don’t think you like me just for a free painting)
The one you get will have an extra 1.5″ all around, for framing purposes.
He’s the first artist to make me understand what it’s like to fall in love with art. His work is the epitome of heart and soul and charisma. It’s playful and energetic and spunky and, well, it’s Ori.
My name is Ori Bengal, and I am an artist.
As of April 23, I’ve been creating a new work of art every single day for 5 years!
To celebrate, I’m giving you the gifts!
More on that below…
These 5 years have been a rollercoaster, and has absolutely shaped my life…

Born in Israel in 1976, Ori Bengal was always doodling, but never considered a career in art. He thought he’d grow up and make cartoons (after being an astronaut, or a veterinarian).
His father had a passion for electronic engineering and science fiction, and thus Ori’s childhood was filled with Science Fiction novels as bedtime stories. Ori was the only 7 year old on the block to have his own soldering iron, and by By 6th grade, Ori was building computers from scratch.
On his 9th birthday, Ori’s parents relocated the whole family to the USA, where Ori learned English by watching cartoons. Wanting to make them became a bit of an obsession- he taught himself animation and 3D, and took jobs that would advance his abilities to create (like working at CompUSA to get wholesale cost on computer parts, or video editing gigs to have access to high-end 3D programs).
Ori would draw and paint for fun, and in 2000, a girlfriend talked him into doing an art show…. He jumped on the first one he found, it was one of those art-walk events that most cities have, and none of the 20 people that walked by that night bought anything, so he thought himself a failure as an artist. He stopped drawing… Although he kept doing creative things: Video editing, 3D animation, graphic design, and eventually landed in Photography.
He lived a bit of a rock-and-roll lifestyle – photographing lingerie models and parties in South Beach… Going on random adventures…. Most of his friends had regular jobs, and couldn’t go along. So, in 2006, when his lease was going to expire, he gave away his stuff (except for laptop, a suitcase of clothes, and a camera), and went Couchsurfing for 6 adventure-filled years, where he stayed with everyone from UFC cage fighters to the CEO of Zappos.com, everyone in between, and their pets.
Staying with hundreds of people allowed Ori to discover a lot about himself, and about people in general — as well as to jump out of planes, go to NASCAR Races, attend Burning Man, do public speaking, play bull-poker, and have countless other adventures.
In 2011, while couch surfing in Maui, a friend took Ori to the art galleries in Lahaina. Ori didn’t want to go (thinking it would be boring and snooty), but as soon as he set foot into the first gallery, he was addicted. By the 5th gallery, he felt heartbreak and regret about having abandoned creating art… Since then Ori’s been creating a new work of art every single day, no matter what.
Ori’s obsession with creating has taken him from drawing, to painting, to sculpting in all forms, to carving, and welding, to 3D, and he’s always exploring new techniques and materials.
Everything came full circle… Ori’s obsession with science fiction and electronics has led him to futuristic technologies (such as using 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC Routers, and more) blended with his obsession with mastery and creation, and his love of the world’s furry friends.
His work is unique, collected in multiple countries around the world , transcends any particular medium, and represents Ori’s Ori’s own sense of playfulness, passion, and freedom.
I said you get the gifts– So… What do you get?
For starters, I’ve collected top 15 paintings from the last 5 years (this took a LOT of time to try and narrow down) ..
So… You get to choose one of those (here they are):
MEET THE WINNERS – Click / swipe, or mouse over these to see titles/sizes.
Why 15 paintings?
Because I tried to pick out the best one for each year, and it was just too difficult… So, 3 were chosen instead for each of the 4 years, and of course 3 more in honor of year 5.
How does one choose the top paintings?
Every single day I upload my paintings to Facebook. Through comments, likes, and just asking people what their votes for the best are, the best rose to the surface…. So it ain’t just the ones I thought were best (though, I truly do love these pics).
Choose one image, and not only will you get 35% off of it, but you also get free shipping (in the USA).
And of course… You get a 16″x28″ Limited Edition, Hand-Signed and Numbered Gicleé Print of Prince At No Cost.
I’m sad that Prince has recently passed away… Right as I was crossing the 5 year threshold He was a visionary, and I paid my respects by making a tribute painting. The painting went viral immediately with over 3,200 likes and 647 shares on Facebook… and lots of people messaging me to buy it.
Now… I am not looking to profit off the death off of a person’s death… I was going to have a 5th year promo anyways, so now I’m giving my Prince painting as a bonus to both sweeten the deal, and as part of my tribute to Prince, I get more paintings of him out there for his fans…
Heck- it’s a pretty cool painting even if you don’t like Prince.
I bought one of Ori’s earlier pieces, a dog chasing a ball. It captures the joy and passion that dogs have, that we can aspire to. I bought it when my wife was battling cancer, as she loved the piece when Ori posted it on Facebook. I’m not saying that Ori’s art cures cancer, but I did buy the piece, and my wife did beat her cancer.
I constantly get praise on the beautiful art whenever people come visit. I also keep it in the background of all my videos. It just brings happiness and energy. Ori was kind enough to ship the art all the way to Scotland. I’d suggest you get some of his original art, where ever in the world you are
THESE WILL LAST LONGER THAN YOU WILL:
These are limited edition, certified, hand-signed and numbered prints. They are archival, and will last longer than you (although, with nano-technology around the corner, I may have to revise that as humans start living to 200 years). These are editions of only 250 pieces.
Just select the print that you would like, and you’ll get the 35% and free shipping on that one, as well as the free painting of Prince.
THE BEAUTY OF ART
The reason that art has been around forever is because it serves multiple purposes. It beautifies where ever you place it. It has been proven to reduce stress, and to bring happiness.
Art also is one of the few investments you can make that actually appreciates in value. While most people don’t have an intention of selling the art they purchase, it makes for a great inheritance, and even increases the value of a home.
Art also makes for an amazing gift.
In order to provide the free shipping* (Within the USA) (Plus my family has a trip to Israel for my Uncle’s 70th birthday- so I”ll be over there for the first 2 weeks of May) – All the paintings will be shipped as soon as this promotion ends, during the last week of May!
Just click on the painting you’d like to get, and your Prince print will be automatically included with your order.
I have multiple sculptures (ceramic, metal, wood) and many large paintings by Ori Bengal in my home. Ori’s art has raised thousands for my favorite charity.
My niece and nephew keep wanting to take my painting (by Ori) of a shark, ‘Mach’ – and I always tell them they can battle it out after I pass away. It is my prized possession.
DON’T MISS OUT!
My real birthday, I stopped caring about long ago. My art career just turned 5 on April 23, and that I certainly am proud and happy to celebrate.
I’ve heard friends say they are celebrating their birthday month… and I’ve always found it cheesy. But now that I actually have a birthday that I’m proud of, I’m starting to get it…. Break out the cake, break out the tequila — It’s a celebration!
BUT…. All good things must come to an end.
To maintain the value for my collectors, these images truly are limited-edition. Only 250 of each piece will be made. (Heck, the Prince tribute got over 400 shares in less than 24 hours of being made). And they are on a first come, first serve basis.
When a piece runs out, you can’t get it anymore.
Then of course there is the birthday month ending, and then these prices go away. You will never see these kind of savings again!
My Birthday Month Ends:
Ori Bengal puts the “Art” in “Heart”. Over the years I have acquired art from many artists… But it’s only Ori Bengal whose art I have in every room in my house. I first bought art from Ori because he was helping a charity by giving away his animal art. I’ve seen him donate his art to many more charities.
My heart is my great danes. When my girl, Rain, was very sick, Ori made a painting of her in my favorite pose. Thankfully, Rain recovered since… But now if anything happens to her, I have a treasured memory of her. It hangs over my bed – and it is so unique- with texture, and metal flakes, it shimmers from different angles.
I own not only animal art from Ori, but also humans. Not just paintings, but also sculptures. My brother has even commissioned a few pieces from Ori.
Ori’s art brings joy to me, and all who see it. I am not just proud to own all the pieces that I do have, but also of Ori for his ongoing dedication to improving his craft every single day for so many years, and still going strong.
Ori’s dedication to his craft is unlike anyone I’ve ever met. I’m proud to have some of Ori’s earliest pieces, as well as some of his latest.
I flew Ori here to do a portrait of my wife. It was a wonderful experience getting to have the artist here- as compared to just buying from a gallery, or online.
I travel the country and visit many galleries and museums, but I’ve yet to see a style as unique as Ori’s – his art really speaks to me.. and having a 9 foot by 4 foot painting of his in my new office, his art also speaks to my clients.
I suggest you get some Ori originals and portraits, and I highly recommend the Ori-Experience.
What are waiting for? Get your limited edition art before the prices go up, or the editions get bought out!
My Birthday Month Ends:
I follow Ori’s work closely on Facebook and enjoy seeing his pieces. I’ve admired quite a few and have come close to purchasing, but when I saw E=LSD, my heart dropped into my stomach, and I knew that I couldn’t let it go anywhere but to my home.
Being a member of MENSA, having a painting or photo of Einstein on the wall of one’s office seems almost obligatory, but at 49 yrs old, I hadn’t found one that “called” to me, so I’ve never had one. That all changed that fateful day!!
Ori was a delight to work with as far as getting the piece finished and here was concerned. He seemed so excited to tell me all about the processes, and I was very interested to hear it. The packing job was amazing – Ori made sure NOTHING was going to happen to it, that’s for sure!
I love my E=LSD. I am as in love with it as the day it got here. Even more so, actually. The love and appreciation for it has deepened with time.
