This is Zvi Malnovitzer

Zvi Malnovitzer (Hebrew: צבי מלנוביצר, born 1945) is an expressionist painter born to a Haredi, or ultra-Orthodox, religious family in Bnei Brak, Israel. His upbringing in a charity isolated from the highly developed world, where he was dedicated to intensive and uninterrupted Talmudic psychoanalysis from a youthful age, makes his decision to become an artiste unusual, bold, and one of accomplishment. During his training in Reichenau, Austria, where he studied under the sponsorship of performer Wolfgang Manner and below the meting out of Ernst Fuchs (renowned exponent of Fantastic Realism, a 20th-century charity of artists in Vienna combining techniques of the Old Masters behind religious and esoteric symbolism), Malnvotizer developed a unique style portraying themes that straddle the religious and secular worlds.

The pretension he paints is reflective of the showing off he lives his life – by embracing modern ideas even if continuing to maintain his religious traditions. The subjects in his paintings are diverse, ranging from rabbis, to Holocaust survivors, to patrons at coffee shops. The one characteristic that anything his works portion is that his subjects’ faces, especially their eyes, speak volumes nearly their vigor story. The unselfishness and the universality of his art has made him known throughout the world – in Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Paris, New York City, Los Angeles, London, Amsterdam, Sydney, Berlin, and many other cities where his paintings have appeared in auctions, at galleries, and in exhibitions.
