He had his first exhibition was at the New School for Social Research in New York and his second at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington in 1949.
His travels throughout Israel, Greece and Turkey in 1960 led to a retrospective at the Artists House in Jerusalem.
He then studied in Paris where he had one-man shows in painting, woodcut and sculpture. Besides practicing his art, Amen also taught classes in sculptor and printmaking at such schools as the Pratt Institute (1961) and at Notre Dame University(1962).
Commissions include a Peace Medal in honor of the Vietnam War and 12 stained glass windows for the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Ohio.
