Michal Ben Zeev, an artist and a painter, is a graduate of the Art Education program of HaMidrasha, Beit Berl Academic College, Israel. 

She currently lives in Binyamina, Israel, a rural and picturesque region that is strongly present and manifested in her works.

Over the years Ben Zeev has experienced in various techniques, materials and media; from ceramics and jewelry to papier-mâché and painting. Since 2005 she has turned exclusively to traditional figurative painting using oils on canvas.

Defiance and a persistent search for an aesthetic essence are constantly present in her intense paintings that are characterized by robust sizzling colors and pure form.

Her paintings reveal and expose the drama behind an apparently routine story — a portrait, a windswept tree, disrepair in the backyard, thus reflecting Ben Zeev's deep rooted connection with nature, and with the mysterious and misleading nature of personal reality.
