Zamy Steynovitz, Polish (1951 - 2000)

Zamy Steynovitz

Zamy Steynoviz, was born in Liegnitz, Poland in 1951 He immigrated to Israel in 1957. The Aspiration to be a painter stem from his childhood, and before leaving Poland he won the first prize in an art competition for children.

His formal education at the Art School in Tel-Aviv and from the Royal Academy in London. Upon Completing his studies he began an artistic activity in real earnest; he established this place in the art world after exhibition his work in one-man exhibtions and art fairs around the world.

Zamy's art displays chromatic and thematic richness. His choice of subjects has been strongly influenced by Jewish tradition and folklore; his art displays general themes such as Paris cafes, still lives, flowers, circuses and landscapes.

In the early stages of his work he used rich pastels and light brush strokes.

In the beginning of the 80's he visited South America: his work was influenced by the new surrounding and enhanced by local brightness and colorfulness. His art gained chromatic power, the palette became richer in tones, the textures thicker, the background darker and more colorful. Together with these changes the thematic persistence in his creation is maintained, allowing him to develop into a sensitive and mature artist.

Zamy Steynovitz paintings are a reflection of his East-European Jewish heritage. They are enhanced by a rich choice of worm tones and colors.

Zamy expresses a universal humanistic idea in his creation: man's connection to his heritage and physical surrounding. These are two imperative aspects in our lives, whish should be recalled during these estranged  technological times.

Zamy is known in the circles of he Nobel Institute for Peace in Norway as a result of his devotion to world peace. Consequently he is acquainted with many Nobel prize winners like Anwar Saadat, Menahem Begin, the Dalai Lama, Itzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres, Elie Wiesel, Demund Tutu, Oscar Arias, the ex Predisent of Costa Rica as well as many politicians and artist.

He tragically passed away in September 2000.
