The inspiration for Forman's drawings began in early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the world's most remote landscapes, which were the subject of her mother's fine art photography.
Zaria Forman’s works have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and The Huffington Post. Zaria was featured on Good Day New York and Fox News and was interviewed by Lucy Yang on ABC7 Eyewitness News. Her drawings have been used in the set design for the Netflix TV series House of Cards.
Zaria’s most recent achievements include participation in Banksy’s Dismaland (Aug-Sep 2015), a solo exhibition at Winston Wächter Fine Art in New York City (Sep-Oct 2015), and a four week art residency in Antarctica aboard the National Geographic Explorer (Nov-Dec 2015). Last November Zaria delivered a TEDTalk at the Town Hall Theater in NYC that aired on PBS, and is featured on TED.com. In November Zaria will be giving a presentation and showing drawings at the opening ceremony for Harvard University’s Center for the Environment. Shortly thereafter she will join NASA's Operation IceBridge, stationed in Punta Arenas, Chile, and flying over various parts of Antarctica daily for three weeks. Her next solo show will take place at Winston Wächter Fine Art’s Seattle location, in February and March of 2017.
Born in South Natick, Massachusetts, Zaria currently works and resides in Brooklyn, New York. She studied at Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy and received a B.S. in Studio Art from Skidmore College.
