Linda Zacks is a contemporary artist, award-winning art director, and graduate of Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Her powerful visual storytelling style—part paint, part poetry—hopscotches between every medium, blurring distinctions between commercial projects and fine art along the way. Growing up outside of (and throughout) the U.S. shaped her mixed-media approach to creating dynamic works, and nothing in her practice—old wood, torn paper, rusty metal, ink, duct tape, Polaroids, digital conversations, video—goes unused.
Zacks' work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications worldwide. Her art installations include "The Greatest City on Earth" public art project in lower Manhattan; Paris Murals Collaboration in Gare Montparnasse Station, Paris; Sony Style Flagship Store in New York City; and the INQ Mobile booth at MWC Barcelona. Her creations in print and on canvas are known for their vivacious energy and mix of grit and grace. A lifelong love affair with words and letters makes its way into every painting and handmade book, some of which have been featured at New York's MoMA Design Store and the International Center of Photography Museum Shop. Her art and brand commissions include projects for Broadway, Sony, Adobe, Viacom, Sneaker Pimps, Target, and the Sundance Film Festival, among others.
