Born in Israel in 1952, Reeb studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design for three years, until 1978, after which he spent almost three years in New York where he was introduced to the new figurative painting and the works of artists such as Keith Haring, Neil Jenney, Thomas Lawson, David Salle and Julian Schnabel. Since his first one-person exhibition in 1979, he has participated in several one-person and group exhibitions in Israel and abroad. Reeb also helped organize and participated in many cooperative shows with Israeli and Palestinian artists protesting the occupation during the 1980s and 1990s.

In his works, Reeb creates a unique synthesis of geometric shapes and decorative patterns which are used to respond to both political and public events exposed in the media but also to personal, intimate subjects such as this self portrait of the artist taking a shower. The hasty, rapid, personal brushstrokes emphasize the urgency as well as the proximity of the subject to the artist.
