Zahra's Style

Zahra is fascinated by the female form, the main subject of her work. Her bold use of colour and curvaceous lines create striking compositions that reflect the beauty and power of women. The forms suggest femininity: the conventionally considered female, the symbolic female, and the abstract female. 


Her work is a tribute to the essence of femininity, discovering beauty in imperfection. She confronts through her art the society of today, where perfection is everywhere. Zahra filters her personal experiences, questioning and analysing herself through abstraction and simplification.

"My work is a tribute to the essence of femininity; a modern female-focus, bringing forth questions surrounding beauty ideals, body shape and gender. Abstract shapes and curvaceous lines, are used to express their feelings, tell their stories." - Zahra Holm

Drop 4 - Autumn 2020

"The beginning of a series called “Des paysages dans la tête” which means in french: landscapes in my head. This series is inspired by the summer and the landscapes I have experienced in the south of France. I think that as a lot of people during this awkward period, I feel the need to reconnect with nature. 

During the lockdown, I fantasized about these landscapes that I couldn’t experience physically. This summer represented a real return to sources. I want to express how these landscapes live with us, are part of us, our body and soul." - Zahra Holm, Des paysages dans la tête


"This collection is an introduction of my art. Pieces from a few months ago and pieces that I made a few weeks ago. A series of portraits inspired by women and my personal feelings." - Zahra Holm
