Vanitas Series

Vanitas Series sits at the crossroads of neo-expressionism and the neo-romantic sublime with an urban art/post-graffiti influence. Drips, gestural brush stokes, spray paint and mark making explode with both the bright and fluorescent, while contrasting with the dark and monochromatic. Zaye attempts to create an abstract landscape with contemporary reflection on the emotive depth conveyed in traditional old masters vanitas paintings; which depict the duality of luxury and oblivion, wealth and futility.
