MICHAEL KOVNER is the son of ABBA AND VITKA KOVNER and is a celebrated Israeli painter. He was born in Kibbutz Ein Hahoresh in 1948. During his military service he fought alongside Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak and other future national leaders. In 1972 he moved to New York to study art with Philip Guston at the New York Studio School, returning in 1975. In 2015 the ABBA KOVNER MUSEUM opened at Givat Haviva, and Michael worked to restore the office and lIving room of Abba Kovner. He wrote and illustrated the graphic novel EZEKIEL’S WORLD, based on the life and work of Abba Kovner. Michael says of his father: “My father was a resistance fighter, a partisan, a poet, and an historian. His many-sided personality exerted a strong influence on all who surrounded him.”
