medina zabo (arezzo, it*79) is an interdisciplinary artist whose investigation finds expression within intersecting methods across pop art, land art and renaissance painting to foreground issues and dynamics of colonisation and metamorphosis mutually in human communities and natural environments.
after a career as a journalist and video reporter, interested mostly in environmental and social topics, in 2012 she stepped down to pursue exclusively her path to becoming an artist. after years of self-education, she studied painting at accademia di belle arti pietro vannucci in perugia and accademia di belle arti di roma, it; currently lives and works half a year between etruria (it) and east london (uk).
