Artist Name

Nae Zerka

Born: 1969

Hometown: Salzburg

Based in: Salzburg

In the age of frequent digital disruption, award winning visual artist Nae Zerka showcase in his work the promising possibilities of painting with technology. As a child of the 80s, Nae Zerka has a penchant for computerrelated activities, including electronic music and graphic design.

His artistic practice infuses visual elements borrowed from these disciplines with a painterly touch. Together with the use of contrasting colours and line work, they form new kaleidoscopic worlds made possible by the digital realm.

More About Nae Zerka

Question IconWhat inspires you?

Everything and nothing. By everything I mean everything that I take in as a human being in my existence. And with nothing I mean that I generally never approach a work thematically, but only follow my impulses. The release of these impulses happens through music.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

Since last year [2020] my work and also the approach have changed seriously. I broke away completely from the traditional materials of painting and began to paint purely digitally. Abstract digital painting, supplemented by fragments of cyberspace and forms of design. I also deliberately do without a drawing tablet with pen and instead uses the mouse to counteract the typical brush hand movements. I usually work on several works in parallel and sometimes combines them. Here, of course, the purely digital approach offers almost infinite possibilities. ​
