About the artist...
Zelyss has grown up among pencils, paint tubes and paper, with her mind filled with fairytales. She is a contemporary artist whose artwork delicately balances between Romanticism and polished Pop-Surrealism.
Her paintings depict serene, melancholic girls with evident innocence flooding out of their big, liquid eyes. Occasionally they flash a bit of a smile, just to give a whisp of optimism to the dark world that surrounds us.
