Zanara’s works appear in private collections of art lovers across multiple countries worldwide. For years, she has been living and working in her studio in East London.
What I create is a reflection of the combination of my passion for folklore, legends and myths, mysticism, quantum physics, alchemy and the meaning of life and death. I try to recall the knowledge that I think we, as mankind have lost on the way of “progress” and – Love. In short I paint life, or at least the way I see it. My characters are abstract and I try to give them a face and form. I do not paint portraits and landscapes, I paint symbols, emotions and situations coming from other worlds, let me put it this way. I personally define my style as a primitive-naive decorative, with a strong folklore elements influence and a great deal of symbols.
