Zak Ové Gives Art Career Advice. Art Discussion
About the artist:
Zak Ové works between sculpture, film and photography. His mission is to reignite and reinterpret lost culture using new-world materials, whilst paying tribute to both spiritual and artistic African identity.
The work is born from his documentation of and anthropological interest in diasporic and African history, specifically that which is explored through Trinidadian carnival.
His work portrays the emancipation of personal existence through incarnation with an ‘other self’, showing us the power of play to free an individual from the contained experience of the self.
This in turn is filtered through his own personal and cultural upbringing, growing up in London and Trinidad.
Zak Ové is represented by Vigo Gallery, London

About Adelaide Damoah:
My name is Adelaide Damoah and I am an artist. The Art Success series of interviews started off in 2011 with written interviews for my blog. I started this project because coming from a science/business background, I had to rethink what success looked like to me and wanted to figure out what it took to become that in this unique business. In talking to other artists in this way on camera, I hope to pass on useful information to other artists and art lovers. Fellow artists can watch and learn from their contemporaries and art lovers can discover new artists and art. Of course, there is the added benefit of promoting my colleagues to new audiences.
Please subscribe to stay up to date with interviews and art Vlogs.
