Solo exhibition by ICON ZAR in Hotel ARTMADAMS Palma.
From BlaBlaBla to the Golden Seahorse Award: An Artistic Journey
When the first artwork featuring a seahorse was created, gallery owner Andy saw its potential for a children's room. Little did anyone know that the Palma Stories Seahorses series, originally in a 100x100 format, would transform into real-life seahorse sculptures. The very first one, called Seahorse Furioso Red Ferrari, was a collaboration with the Palma Aquarium Foundation and Banca March, and it sparked the idea of creating a Seahorse Farm for future productions.
In the portfolio of Icon Zar Artist, you'll find a stunning collection of different seahorses. From the elegant Furioso Classic in white and gold to the enchanting Furioso Unicorn in turquoise, each piece is a work of art. The Furioso Magnum White, standing at an impressive 1m 50, and the Furioso Faberge Lux, with its separate egg design and precious stones, showcase the artist's innovation and creativity. The latest design even features a collaboration with Tzarine, a new champagne brand, resulting in a champagne holder measuring 46 cm and 1.50.
All these series have been patented for their innovation and uniqueness. However, the journey doesn't end there. The very last sculpture created by Icon Zar Artist is a Film Award, available as a prize for upcoming film festivals. It is truly a one-of-a-kind piece for those who appreciate the intersection of art and cinema.
Adding a personal touch, Icon Zar Artist has also created a series of self-portraits celebrating her 20 years in the creative industry. These images are a beautiful compilation of her various art projects throughout the years, a testament to her evolution as an artist.
In addition to her artistic creations, Icon Zar invented her own currency, the Russian Dollar. With names like "From Russia with Love" before the war and "We are brothers and Sisters" during the war, this currency holds deep meaning. The Dollar Rose and This is Green Dollar represent messages of hope for the end of the war in Ukraine.
From humble beginnings to the prestigious Golden Seahorse Award, Icon Zar Artist has created a diverse and captivating body of work. Her seahorse sculptures, film awards, and personal artworks are a testament to her boundless creativity and artistic vision. Journey through her portfolio and be captivated by the magic she brings to life.
