STREET ARTIST / MURAL ARTIST

EJ Zyla is a self-taught Artist with a predisposition for Fine Arts.
Her arts practice has moved from lead-lighting, Photography, Illustration to self publication, digital drawing, concept design and now mural/public art work. She considers herself a ‘Jack of all trades’ in terms of telling story, visually. She uses these skills within public art as she feels most at home painting large scale images from years of drawing and refining her style through the medium of paint. Using the themes of energy, connection and ‘other-worldly’ design approaches to reconfigure an object and working in great detail in order to give the eye space to roam. She likes to evoke a sense of curiosity, critical thinking and most importantly to leave you wondering what you are seeing.
