Zvi Mairovich was born in Korsno, Poland in 1911. Zvi’s art education began in Berlin, where he studied with Karl Hofer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin. While studying in Berlin, Mairovich would soon leave for Haifa where he would spend most of his life.

Mairovich was a crucial part of the New Horizons group as cofounding member. These artists promoted an abstract style, that would encompass Mairovich’s own work. Prior to this time Mairovich was more a traditional landscape painter. While he maintained a focus on the subject, his style became more abstract, with start contrasts between dark and light flashes.

Fellow members of the New Horizons group, including Arie Aroch, looked to move Israeli painting away from the concentration on Expressionism. Mariovich would stay with the group until 1959, developing his unique approach to landscape works through oil and chalks.

Mairovich was selected to represent Israel in the Venice Biennale in 1956, 1958, and 1962 as well as the Sao Paulo Bienal of 1953 and 1959.
