Visionary artist | Russia
ICON ZAR was born in Moscow ( Russia), during the Soviet time. Running between ice skating, ballet classes, vocal lessons, made her realize “ Art is a Powerful tool for social changes “
Under influence of Old Hollywood movies, Coca-Cola and Pop American Culture, Disney Animation, Communism propaganda and Russian folklore stories, shaped her future vision of “ Making a world a better place “
Calling herself “The Last Daughter of Russian Communism and Rebel at Heart.“
Her Art is divided into 9 different periods: RED, BLUE, WHITE, BLACK, GREY, PINK, GOLD, GREEN and VIOLET. Each period has reflections of political changes in the world for that period of time. Her art is in many collections around the world like USA, France, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Irland, UK, Russia, Japan and Spain. Working with charities, foundations and environmental organizations made her realize how consuming daily habits can make a big difference in the world and “ There‘s No Planet B “
She left Russia after the collapse of Soviet Union, facing democracy chaos, she went to Spain to “live a better life“.
In Palma de Mallorca Icon Zar found herself as a true artist, inspired by light, Magical Paradise Island and historical spirit of the past, specially from 19 century. Her desire to become a movie director takes form of Russian Mediterranean artist, where each of her Art Periods has a story to tell and new challenges in colour.

“I am afraid that our children will be grown up and seahorses already have been disappeared.
I hope that by having my painted sea horses in the room, they will remember how wonderful they are.”
The HMH Gallery is proud to announce a collaboration with one of the artists we represent- ICON ZAR and the RANA Foundation. Icon Zar‘s work is fanciful, exuberant, funny and she has generously agreed to donate a porcentage of the sale of her artworks form Seahorses project ( “Amore“ , Caballitos de Mar ) during the month September / October to RANA which has been working for over 15 years in the Balearic Islands to prevent child sexual abuse, something that will affect about 1 in every 5 children.
