"Mohammad Zaza’s   work   is  a  fascinating  journey  through a  universe  of constant metamorphosis and transformation. His images epitomize the flow of life: never ending change and  the  perpetual  creation of ever new  forms and shapes and points of view. 

He has found  his own very  unique aesthetic  language which  with he lures us  into his mysterious, puzzling and enchanting world. 

His art does what relevant art is supposed to do: it touches, moves and surprises, and          it makes you think."

(Gottfried Helnwein, Ireland, 2016).
   




Mohammad Zaza (1987).

In 2010 he has graduated from The Faculty of Fine Arts at Aleppo University, remaining at the university as the painting teacher’s assistant until 2012. Since 2013, he has travelled across the countries of the Middle East, working and exhibiting his work at numerous exhibitions and international art fairs in Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Syria.
He has been recognised as a neo-surrealist painter, whose shapes and figures unapologetically confront the viewer with profound dimensions of understanding and affection, reaching beyond a universal. 
Particularly interested in conveying the idea of movement on canvas, Zaza has boldly challenged the preconceptions of form and function in his works.

Between 2019 and 2020, Zaza launched his open working studio in Brussels, a vibrant environment, which hosted multiple cultural events, performances and exhibitions.
 The space and Zaza’s work were presented during Brussels Gallery Weekend, as an emerging spot of artistic exchange.

Besides painting on large-scale canvas, also works on illustrations and animations.
Currently, based and working in Lausanne, Switzerland.
