Gueffen was born to Polish Jewish parents in 1930 in the city of Haifa, then administered under the British Mandate, in what is now Israel. From 1949 to 1953 he studied at Bezalel Art School, Jerusalem; and during 1959–63 at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Gueffen works in large format, primarily in oils on canvas. His latest works are collages, oil and sack on natural canvas, jute or wood. He produces many drawings, and works essentially from sketches of models. Has also illustrated books: Robinson Crusoe published by the Israeli publisher Amoved in the 1960s and he provided the illustrations for The World's Best Jewish Jokes by Ben Eliezer, published in 1984.
From 1967–1988, Gueffen lived and worked in London, in Europe and the United States. Gueffen's works are in private collections worldwide. His work appears in auctions in Europe and Israel. The Museum of Natural History of New York commissioned a work of five paintings by Gueffen depicting the "Life and Cycle of Judaism" His works are predominantly of women and his style has been described as "figurative-expressionist".[better source needed] However, the impact of encountering Rembrandt's Night Watch was one which spanned some 20 years for Gueffen, and culminated in Dialogue with Rembrandt's Night Watch, a work of nine paintings.
