We are delighted to be exhibiting the stunning artwork of artist Kerry Zacharia at Vintners Place, London.

Kerry is a London based artist who draws iconic locations in London with continuous lines. Here we talk to Kerry about her inspirations and the artworks in her current exhibition.

How and when did you first become seriously interested in art? 

I became seriously interested in art once I made the decision to go public with my art in the summer of 2013.  I was astounded and encouraged by the response I received and have not looked back since.

What artists or professionals have been your biggest influences?

I have often been asked this question.  My art is not influenced by any particular artists or professionals.  I recall characteristics of my style as far back as my younger days at school. People, however, like to place art and on many occasions my art has largely been described as like ‘Van Gogh’ and sometimes ‘Edvard Munch’.

What do you try to express in your work?

I try to express mood and energy in my work.  Through freedom of expression I bring to the viewer a different experience, one that allows them to engage with the art in a positive way. My art has naturally evolved a relationship with color, which I leave with the viewer to form an opinion upon.  Over time, followers of my art will recognise this relationship and use of color in my art.

Which is more important to you, the subject of your painting or the way it is executed?

The subject is important as it’s the basis of the composition which is generated from an inspiration and a theme.

Which artistic project are you most proud of?

‘London in Different Dimensions’ is my largest and most successful project to date, it is a classic and timeless body of art.

What memorable responses have you had to your work? Do they influence your work and process in anyway?

The most memorable response is that my art is like Van Gogh from another dimension.

What have you been up to in the last five years?

I have been working on creating art based on inspiration I have drawn from my own experiences and I have been actively taking part in group shows and working with other artists to build my reputation as an artist and to build the following for my art.  The response I have received is consistently very encouraging.  I worked towards my first major solo show, ‘London in Different Dimensions’ held in 2018 and now working towards the next major body of work in the theme of family and faith.

Where do you create your work?

I create my art at home.

What excites you about showcasing your artwork through ARTful and in a more corporate environment?

ARTful showcase artwork in highly prestigious locations.  My art would suit either a home or office environment and by showcasing with ARTful it has the potential to reach potential collectors of my art.

The exhibition will run until May 10th 2020 at 68 Upper Thames St, Queenhithe, London EC4V 2AF. All original work on show is available to purchase as well as prints. For further information or to arrange an appointment to view contact info@artful.org.uk or call 0208 702 8030.
