Niki Zahava is a visual artist and professional actress based in Massachusetts. Her art work has participated in Awakening Gallery?s group exhibit ?Reclaim? in Chicago, Illinois, Fusion Art?s ?6th Annual Landscapes Art Exhibition? and was included in the winner?s list in Contemporary Art Gallery?s 2021 ?All Women Artist Competition? (photography and digital art category) She earned her Post-Baccalaureate certificate in Classical Theatre Performance and earned her BA in Theatre with a minor in media communications concentrating on graphic art. Inspired by my mother's art, when I was 4 years old and living in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, NY, I found a box of her oil pastels and outlined the various shapes within the plaster on the walls throughout the apartment. Although colorful, this early exploration as an artist was not appreciated by my mother and thus, my career as a muralist ended. My adult art journey began with digital pastels and digital blending stumps on an iPad. I began to incorporate a few drawing techniques I had learned as an undergraduate student and began creating art digitally. Meditating once again on shapes, art became a new avenue of expression that I found incredibly healing. It became a way for me to express the bubbling inside and a way that keeps me present and focused only on shapes and color. As a survivor of childhood sexual assault and violence, painting and drawing has become a tool and outlet that helps me express my own story. Sometimes that story is hidden behind something whimsical, bold, and colorful, but always the 1st slap of paint comes from deep within and brought out by a note of a song, the colors of the sky or a random shape on the wall. I share this once very private information so that fellow survivors may be inspired to find the healing powers of the arts and so that non survivors may understand how deeply important it is to support the arts both visual and performance based.

Pink Abstraction #3

  • "Pink Abstraction #3 is abstracted from a larger watercolor piece. The larger piece was a practice in water to paint technique. As I photographed the piece as it dried. I saw various interesting compositions and colors. I uploaded the images to my iPad, photoshop, and cropped where I saw each composition. There are 3 in this series." ~Niki Zahava Art is everywhere. Stop and look at the various shades of color in a sunset or sunrise, trees, water, sounds or a shape on the wall. The challenge is allowing yourself to stop, breath and be open to the inspiration that music, nature, sorrow, and happiness provides. ~Niki Zahava This art will look beautiful in any room of your home or office.
