About the artist:
Liegnitz, Poland, 1951 – Israel, 2000
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 technological times.
Zamy is known in the circles of the 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 Sadat, Menahem Begin, the 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.
He tragically passed away in September 2000.
