Studied Art, Painting and art printing in Avni institute in Tel Aviv.

Porat's continuous pursuit is associated with his unsteady, difficult and diverse childhood, his search for Jewish and Israeli identity, his assimilation of past events and family history, as well as of Israeli present and society and his place in them. His standing within several artistic branches - painting, literature, music, and photogra Haves J.Porat - multi disciplinary artist, Oil paintings, mixed media, pencil drawings, woodcuts, linocuts and other art prints by Israeli painter and woodcut master, Jacob Porat."

Jacob Porat is distinguished by his search for different, various forms of expression. The exhibitions he has held throughout the years expose the constant and changing elements of his works in all possible aspects: techniques, compositions, and themes. Although evident in his work, hisliterary education does not make his paintings an illustration of literary writings. Rather, it serves as the driving force of the painting, an enabler of deeper expression and intricacy of the visual statement. Porat's paintings have a life of their own, and these lives have been an integral part of his works sincehe has begun painting to date. His works in general, and "Conversations with Kafka" in particular, strike a correct balance between the "painting instinct", which is based on intuition and talent and the intellect that is aware of itself and of the literary interpretation of themes.

Jacob Porat - Suns, Gods and Animals
...
Jacob Porat is a multi-disciplinary person that amalgamates a painter, literary scholar, teacher and musician. This multiplicity is evident in his studio. His interests span over a broad sphere and the approach his takes towards his work is often associated with art history, politics and literature.
...
Porat has chosen large, vegetarian, harmless animals such as a camel, a giraffe, or a deer. However, the graffiti, children-like riders are clutching weapons such as clubs and shield.
...
Porat has painted himself as a Byzantine icon, with black, inspecting eyes from a side view.
