With the dodo being extinct, Zaahirah (ZEE) got to work to bring it back to life through her art. Thank you Zee!
For those who do not know what the dodo is, a bit of history may help. The dodo is an extinct bird (made extinct in the 17th century due to the Dutch invasion, it is believed). It was only found in the land of Mauritius. Read more about the dodo on Wikipedia.
The reason you will see the dodo featuring in Zee’s work is this talented artist is from Mauritius. She derives a lot of inspiration from her hometown, which she then translates into her artwork.
You just have to google for Zee Arts and the online search map is dotted with her art exhibitions around the world, from Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles, UAE (Dubai/Abu Dhabi) and UK-London. She was the recipient of “Oscar de la Jeunesse 2001” in Artistic Pursuit organized by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Mauritius.
What is so great about her art is her absolute flexibility in using a variety of materials (mixed media). She has the knack to blend together in harmony amongst the ‘amalgam of colours.’ She says, “It is the only time that I feel the real freedom- a sense of peace acumen and inner conversation to myself.”
The other aspect of Zee is her involvement in philantropic causes and social issues, involving women and children. My paintings are “a sense of reflection, reconnection or celebration,” she says.
