Zinovii was born in Chuguev, in Ukraine. As the son of a soldier who had served 25 years in the Russian Army, he was less constrained by the anti-semetic measures regulating Russian society at the time. He graduated from Kharkov art school in 1899 and went to study art in Munich in the studio of Shimon Holloshi.
Grzhebin was closely associated with Maxim Gorky.
