Zeevic was born in Jaffa, where he grew up and finished high school. After serving in the army, he left Israel and travelled, from 1989 until 1992, mainly in the third world, volunteering wherever there was a need. He worked extensively with people with leprosy, teaching them creative art. He worked also with people with AIDS.

In 1992, he returned to Israel, where he continued to work with people with AIDS, and the Israeli Organization for AIDS, Bella Doeget, major Israeli hospitals that provide care to those sick with H.I.V. and AIDS.Zeevic

In January 2001 he moved to Eilat, drawn by his love of the desert. He now works in a Kindergarten with children with special needs. In his spare time he makes papier mâché sculptures. All his life, Zeevic has been involved in different forms of art, including painting, carving and making jewellery.

In Eilat, his creation deals with waste and the cleansing environment. The sculpture comes the recycling of plastic, wood, metal, etc. He covered the various items with newspaper and then covered the newspaper with paint to form a kind of laquer over the objecs used. The sculpture and its finished shape comes from the evolved shape formed by the sculptural components themselves.
