Maimon was born in Israel, in 1951, to French speaking parents. He grew up in Tel Aviv exhibiting a talent for art, a love for la vie Francais.
Maicon attended the Avni Institute of Fine Arts in Tel Aviv, Israel's most prestigious academy for the arts. This is where his initial interest in the Paris School was cultivated; where he studied the works of the French painters Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Henri Matisse. Maimon was also inspired at this time by such Israeli artists as, Haim Kiva and Moshe Rosenthalis.
Maimon started teaching at the School of Visual Arts in Beer-Sheba in the early 1980s, and later that year at the Kaye Art Academy, He also became a professor at the Ben-Gurion University in Beer-Sheeba in the late 1980's.
When art lovers enter his world they "feel relaxed and connect with the scene. They can forget their everyday problems and become emerged in the romantic fantasy."
Maimon's art is held in private and public collection and can be seen at art exhibitions and collections around the world.
