Uzi attended the Jerusalem School for the Deaf from childhood through adolescence. At the age of 11, Uzi began studying art at the Museum of Israel in Jerusalem. From 1973 to 1975, he studied lithography and sculpture at the Art Museum of Tel-Aviv. After this, he continued studying art in an art residency program, Ein Yod, in Haifa.
