Art Brokerage: Zamy Stenovitz Polish Artist: b. 1951-2000. Zamy Steynovitz was born in Liegnitz, Poland and immigrated to Israel in 1957. The aspiration to be a painter Stemmed from his childhood, and prior to leaving Poland began his artistic activity in earnest. He established his place in the art world after exhibiting his work in one-man exhibitions 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, displaying general themes: Paris, still-lifes, flowers, angels, circuses and landscapes. In the early stages of his work he used rich pastels, ink, watercolors and light brush stokes however in the beginning of the 80's when he visited South America his work was influenced by new surroundings and enhanced by local brightness and colorfulness. His art gained chromatic power; the palette became richer in tones, the fixtures thicker, the backgrounds darker and more colorful. Through these developments, Steynovitz's thematic elements persisted in his creation, allowing him to develop into a sensitive and mature artist.
