Born 1994

Kerala, India

Zia Ismail is an architect by education and a practicing artist. Her artwork is driven by her love of nature and her in-depth observation of details. Deeply inspired by the diversity of flora and fauna in Zia’s hometown (Kerala, India), her work is characterized by true-to-life impressions of environmental elements, playing with textures, color variations, and anatomy. She is experimenting with various mediums, from felt pin to watercolor and acrylic, and the most recent series “Imprint” is the first time using light as her medium.
