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


"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
