Originally from Sweden and Tunisia, contemporary artist Zahra Holm lives and works in Paris, France.
Zahra is a self-taught painter, primarily working with oil paint. She is fascinated by the female form, the main subject of her work. Her bold use of color and curvaceous lines create striking compositions that reflect the beauty and power of women. The forms suggest femininity, conventionally considered female, symbolically female, close to abstraction.
Her work is a tribute to the essence of femininity, discovering imperfection. She is inspired by nature, human shapes and filters her personal experiences, question herself through abstraction and simplification.
