Vaz Zastra






110 Main Street East, P.O. Box 325

Merrickville, ON


(Beside the Courtyard Patio

of the Baldachin Inn/Restaurant)



Instead of using canvas, paper, or wood, Vaz breaks tradition and utilizes galvanized sheet metal to receive the high tech paints. This gives each piece

an underlying fortitude that is a Zartwerks trademark.

This material combination provides a smoothness

that results in unique interactions, creating numerous

dimensions and multi-faceted images. A composition

can appear quite simple at first glance, but upon

closer inspection, becomes far more complex,

allowing several levels of interpretation.


Through this media, Vaz filters his dreams and creates unique, distinctive, and innovative compositional structures by synthesizing nature with his imagination

and feelings.
