Zamy Steynovitz was born in Liegnitz, Poland in January 15, 1951.
He immigrated to Israel in 1957. The aspiration to be a painter stems from his
childhood, and before leaving Poland he won the first prize in an art
competition for children.
His formal education was 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 and established his place in the art world through
exhibition of his work in one-man shows 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; still lives, flowers, angels, circuses
and landscapes. In the early stages of his career he used rich pastels, ink,
watercolors 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 fixtures 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 warm tones and colors.
Zamy expresses a universal humanistic idea in his creation; man’s
connection to his heritage and physical surroundings. These are two imperative
aspects in our lives, which should be recalled during these estranged

Dalai Lama, Itzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres, Elie Wiesel, Desmund Tutu, Oscar Arias,
the ex President of Cost Rica as well as many politicians and artists.
