This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

David Murginski was an exceptional man.  Although his better known brother Israeli artist Mordechai Arieli gets a lot of acclaim, David was a real hero.  He was part of the French Resistance during WWII.  He used his art to help the resistance by making counterfeit money, food stamps and various identification.  The Germans were out to find him, but never did.  They did though capture his wife and eventually killed her.  He lived in France and Israel.   

His father was also an artist in Poland-Belarus.  He designed artwork on many government buildings.  When the pogroms increased, they shut down his company and little by little the family dispersed to Israel and the US.  Some family members stayed and many were killed by the Nazis.  

Information provided by Alan Zukofsky, grand-nephew of the artist.
