Zac Yeates

Bio

Zac Yeates’s work strives for a connection with the viewer, exploring personification and human forms using mixed media—mainly gouache and oil pastels—to reveal color-intensive portraits. Fascinated by ordinary life and elements of pop culture, Yeates evokes a parallel between the absurd and the comedic, a contradiction between the familiar and the strange, and a relationship between the artist and the viewer. Yeates was born in Western Australia but continues his artistic journey in Vilnius, Lithuania, reflecting the zeitgeist back onto the viewer with the final objective of mutual understanding expressed through a knowing smile.
