Felix Zaska came to Ireland from Bavaria to attend Boarding School in Waterford, studied Industrial Design in Munich and graduated from Trinity College, Dublin. Originally based in County Wicklow he now lives and works as an artist and art photographer on the shores of Clew Bay in the West of Ireland.
His professional background is in advertising, corporate, architecture and travel photography in Ireland and abroad. Also a student of Oceanography he has a special interest in the Atlantic and ecosystem of the oceans as key against humanity’s self-inflicted apocalyptic future.
“As a photographer and sailor, I have always had a close 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 digital 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 human history, ancient civilisations, archeology and world religions.”
