Gaber recently enriched his artistic talent as the Producer and Director of his first provocative and inquisitive 99-minute feature documentary titled” It’s All About ME”. He was twice awarded during International Film Festivals in 2013 and 2014.
In 2017 Berta Taracena, famous Mexican Historian and Art Critic, honored Gaber to become the first Canadian Artist ever, to join the prestigious artist group of the “MIRADA COLOSAL”. Gaber was inducted into the prestigious Artists group at the Senate in Mexico City for his universal vision of the arts, while also supporting important social causes.
In 2018 he was inducted by the City of Niagara Falls, to the Wall of Fame, for his contribution to the Arts & Culture of the Region.
In 2018 Gaber as the Artistic Director, he launched “Water for Life”, International Art Exhibitions, a cultural and artistic program that showcases around the world a series of artworks inspired by the theme of water. The purpose is to convey the message that water is essential to our very existence and to sensitize audiences to this critical social issue that “one person out of 7 in the world does not have access to drinkable water”. With the theme of water, our objective is to sensitize audiences through art to an important social and cultural issue that is also affected by Climate Change.
In parallel, “Water for Life”, created Children and Adolescent Art Workshops to sensitize children through artistic expression to the role they play in protecting water. “Water for Life “supported the 1989 United Nations Convention for the Rights of Children and Adolescence, partnering in 2018-2019 with the Italian initiative “World Day for the Rights of Children and Adolescence” II & III Edition in Florence, bringing these itinerant exhibitions to an International level thanks to the participation of children from Sweden, Canada, USA, Spain and Mexico. In 2019, “Water for Life”, Children and Adolescent Art Workshops exhibited in Canada (Niagara Falls), Mexico (Cancun) and Italy (Florence).
During the same period, the Centre for UNESCO of Florence, Italy partnered with “Water for Life” overall successful Program as it was aligned with their Global mission and vision to protect water.

Among the total exhibitions many were held in several Museums and other very prestigious locations in different Countries in Europe, Mexico and Canada. Gaber artwork was also recognized by over 12 International Art Critics from several Countries (Argentina, Italy, Mexico, USA).
Gaber continuously plays a role in the advancement of art and science. In an incessant desire for harmony, his artistic works, his humanitarian projects and his incommensurable dreams of communion with man and nature contribute in unison to the working of his straightforward mission: utilizing his talents to benefit a good cause. An increasing unique presence on the world’s artistic stage is indicative of the piercing vision that guides and shapes Gaber’s ever-evolving oeuvre.
As a cancer researcher, artist painter, photographer, and film producer, I strongly believe that by taking and absorbing the beautifulness of nature and through the artistic expression of that beauty, one can initiate the healing process of the body and spirit of the human kind injured by the world’s negative influences.
