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 to Clew Bay in the West, he now lives and works as an artist and art photographer in Westport.
Professional background includes over 2 decades of advertising, corporate and architecture photography in Germany and Ireland. Also lectured photography and studied Oceanography due to his interest in the Atlantic and protecting the ecosystem of the oceans.
“As a photographer and sailor, I have always had a special relationship with 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 a artist in my own individual space… deliberately positioned in a bohemian socially unconventional way outside ‘the box’ and social media. My specialised genre could be described as apocalyptic raw art reflecting that ’ Time is an Illusion…’ (Albert Einstein) . Much of my work is focused on translating concepts of time, space and eternity into visual ‘Raw Art’ projects using Mixed Media, Painting, Sculpture and Art Photography” ( https://felixzaska.com ). Solo Exhibitions include : Millennium Art photography Exhibition in 2000 at the Guinness Hopstore, Dublin. “Countdown to Eternity” and the Westival 2021 Exhibition, Westport.
