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, PARADISE ISLAND AND HISTORICAL PAST, SPECIALLY FROM THE 19TH CENTURY. HER DESIRE TO BECOME A MOVIE DIRECTOR TAKES FORM OF RUSSIAN MEDITERRANEAN ARTIST, WHERE EACH OF HER PERIODS HAS A STORY AND NEW CHALLENGE.
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.

WORKING WITH CHARITIES, FOUNDATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANISATIONS MADE HER REALISE HOW CONSUMING DAILY HABITS CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
