Meirovich was born in 1911 in Krosno, Galicia.
In 1924 he began his studies at the Art Academy in Berlin, where he studied for two years. The theoretical study was not enough for him, and he was accepted into the studio of the artist Karl Hofer of the German Expressionists, where he worked for eight months. In 1926 he painted the sets for the play "The Dybbuk" which was performed in Krosno.
In 1934, after the Nazi rise to power in Germany, he immigrated to Palestine and settled in Haifa.
Meirovitch together with the artists Menachem Shemi, Avraham Mohar, Ozer Shabat and others initiated the "Haifa Artists Group". He met Jacob Wexler and began working with him. Since 1948 he has been part of the "Ofakim Hadashim" group of artists.
Meirovich's paintings are a mixture of intellectual thought and deep emotional experience. His paintings convey a great deal of power of formative values of disassembling and reconnection, and color values of grading and sub-tones. Although in his paintings you can see brush strokes, they are always done deliberately and precisely, without incident.
In the 1930s, Meirovitch focused on expressive landscape paintings painted in Israel. Its color palette made use, focused mainly on shades of green, gray and blue.
In his paintings from the 1940s, the theme of the landscape continued to appear, but the landscapes became more closed. During this period the influence of French art of that period began to appear, and their rigid geometry, which lacked the perspective that froze the figures and objects in the painting without volume or depth, seemed to have been squashed into the canvas. His paintings depict flower vases, women, girls and stills (mainly fruits), which he painted abstractly, with great sensitivity to the use of color. Then he began to discover the shades of red and warm heat.
In 1966, Meirovich painted the first series of paintings to be later read "The Pundas," using pastel-oil paints (which were named after the factory in which they were called the panels), oil paints, pencils and graphite on paper. These paintings dominated frantic lines that filled the area of painting to the full. These works later became the works most identified with Meirovich. In his panda paintings, says Meirovich, became "a painting of nature and the nature of painting".
Meirovich drew a lot of elements from nature and presented them in abstraction. The process of his work was systematically gradual, yet he did not impose any law on the embodiment of forms as abstract elements. He later gave up clear images and began to create free compositions without structure, in which the colored element played a crucial role. The shape of his paintings preserves its independent properties and is presented as a three-dimensional illusion.
Meirovich won the prestigious Dizengoff Prize three times (in 1942, 1950, 1961).
He has exhibited in many exhibitions around the world and his works are in many collections and museums in Israel and abroad.
He was married to the author Yehudit Hendel. He died in 1974 at the age of 63.
