“Meet a vendor” offers a closer look at some of ARTE’s fabulously talented artists and crafters.
If you are looking for something unusual, then ARTE is your treasure cove!! For some unique and different home decor ideas, or as quirky gifts to friends, Rasha from Tizerzert Art has got an eccentric collection to choose from: wall hangings, painted story telling rocks, handmade cards, scrap booking and amazing pinatas!!
With an endearing connection between Rasha and her trade name Tizerzert – both words meaning ‘gazelle’ (Rasha in Arabic and Tizerzert in Berber), her love for languages started at university. She conducted her own little investigation into the Berber language, which many of her student friends spoke. Libyan/German born Rasha speaks French, English and Arabic, a little German and Dutch, and Amazigh (Berber dialect). But it may be her Bachelor in Zoology that inspires her art in creating these adorable, quirky animal pinatas!
With so many talents it is not surprising that Rasha even knows how to prepare and process lamb skin to make a rug from scratch!
Enthusiastic and energetic, Rasha’s life slogan is “Just do it” which is evident in her passion for life and art, as she states: “Make what you love to do with love and passion and avoid to fall in the trap of being commercially oriented, this would not be art anymore, you are not a retailer, you are an artist! You sell a dream !”
What’s next for Rasha? “Many ideas are spinning in my mind, I always like to renew myself. I hate limitations, the more creative you are the more creative you get, the more you start seeing things around you through your special lense, seeing potential and new uses of everyday’s things around you…”
Come meet Rasha at the next ARTE market!
