Ultra Realistic Finger-paintings of Icebergs by Zaria Forman
Artist Zaria Forman’s finger paints create extraordinary painting images of the Icebergs of Greenland. Brooklyn-based artist motivated by her travels to the most astonishing landscapes and developed an appreciation for the beauty and vastness of the ever-changing sky and sea. I loved the plain desert, far-off storms, monsoon rains, and cold arctic light illuminating Greenland waters.
I’ll not forget my travel when I took myriads photographs and make little sketches. When I came back, I was really impressed with Greenland’s beauty and would like to draw on my memories, experiences, and photographs to create large-scale compositions. I’d like to add layers of color onto the papers, smudging everything with my fingers and hands.
I’m really inspired by my mother (Rena Bass Forman), and she had conceived the idea for the voyage, but sadly did not live to see it through. During her illness, ever her dedication never wavered and then I decided to carry out her final journey.
I am deeply grateful to my teammates for helping me carry out her wishes and realize her dream. My aim is for these bring drawings to bring awareness, and invite viewers to share the urgency in a hopeful and meaningful way. Read More – A Place Where the Namib Desert Meets the Ocean
