Felix Zaska was cast onto the shores of Ireland from Bavaria at the age of 15 , attended Boarding School and graduated from Trinity College Dublin. Having moved  from Co. Wicklow to Clew Bay in the West, he now lives and works as an artist and art photographer.

Professional background includes over 2 decades of advertising, corporate, architecture and travel photography in Ireland and abroad. Also lectured photography in college and studied Oceanography due to his interest in the Atlantic and ecosystem of the oceans as key to the planet’s survival.

“As a photographer and sailor, I have always had a special relationship with the sea and the wildness of the West of Ireland, the ever changing light and meeting free spirited descendants of seafarers and pirates around Clew Bay in Mayo.

 

“I see myself as an artist in my own bohemian space… deliberately positioned outside ‘the box’ of social media. My genre could be described as Apocalyptic Raw Art reflecting that ’ Time is an Illusion…’ (Albert Einstein) . Much of my work is focused on exploring  and translating concepts of time, space and eternity into visual ‘Raw Art’ projects using Painting, Sculpture and Mixed Media / Art Photography. On this non ‘religio’ (bound together) Odyssey my experimental body of work also reflects interests in ancient civilisations, world religions including Biblical influences and archeology.”
