France  • 1961


For fifteen years, Zaza, a female artist sculptor, has been working with passion in the southwest of France where she draws her inspiration from the world of the toro, rugby and the sea.

She has participated in numerous exhibitions both in Bayonne and in Dax. She received the first prize for sculpture in 2003 in Mont de Marsan. "My work is based on the global abstraction of the detail, while keeping a maximum of volume.

After having honored the Festayre with the poster of the Fêtes de Dax 2010, Zaza has dedicated the year 2011 to the toros. The artist's creativity has been stimulated by her passion for this emblematic horned animal, a noble animal full of presence to which she gives the essential and the sublime: "the ideogram of the toro, this silhouette that summarizes it globally from the horns to the tail," she says.

A specialist in animal sculptures, the artist thrives on the creation of bullfighting actors... "Animals speak to me", she says simply. Whatever the support, cellular concrete, serpentine from Zimbabwe, bronze, these toros and other polar bears offer a visual all in roundness, warm and dynamic that makes you want to slide your hand and your look.

Inspired by Niki de Saint Phalle and the voluptuous sculptures of Botero, Zaza displays her particularities since a passion discovered in childhood and at the time when she manipulated the clay under the advice of Benoît Lasserre.

Fame was not long in coming, the artist exhibited in Dax, Bayonne, Saint Jean de Luz, Madrid, Bilbao and she collected trophies. The numerous international collectors who love a raw and intuitive art where strength, modesty and sensitivity are mixed, and who have already come across Zaza's sculptures, have fallen under her spell!
