Moshe Kupferman was born in Jaroslav, Galicia, 12 Aug 1926.
He first began to draw in 1947 after seeing the Renaissance and Baroque works in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich.
He emigrated to Israel in 1948 and was one of the founders of Kibbutz “Lohamei HaGetaot”.
In 1953 and 1955 he attended the summer art courses held at Kibbutz Na’an under Yossef Zaritsky and Avigdor Stematsky.
Under the influence of the lyrical abstract style of these artists his work became increasingly abstract by the late 1950s.
In 1960 he had his first one-man show at the Chemerinsky Gallery in Tel Aviv, and the following year he travelled in Europe.
Kupferman died in his Kibbutz in 2003.
