About Eduard Zentsik

ZED - Eduard Zentsik is a prolific Estonian-based artist of many faces. He’s developed radically different artistic personas, refusing to link his name to a single signature style, technique, or theme. Instead, Zentsik mixes genres and media and playfully subverts the traditions of old.

For over years of creativity had more than a hundred personal exhibitions and took part in numerous joint projects. Participant and winner of international Photographic and Art competitions. Numerous works are in private collections around the world.

Favorite artists include Banksy, Alex Colville, Rudolf Stingel, Jeff Koons, Andreas Gursky, Gerhard Richter, Francis Bacon, Pat Steir, Jonas Burgert, Yayoi Kusama.
