“Black Girl” by Fyza Zubair, 2018
What inspired this painting?
Fyza: Just practising portrait paintings and I’ve taken a keen interest in african art at the moment.
Who’s your favourite artist?
There’s this artist I’m obsessed with and I looked to her work for inspiration. Her name is Anette Tjaerby Manege.
What got you to start painting?
I’ve done it for for a few years, not to mention I did the GSCE for it. And I guess that in itself developed into a passion which chose to rekindle itself now.
What does art do for you?
Its a form of creative expression and escape, It provides an alternative focus from Tv shows and academic work. So it’s become a hobby.
It can tend to make me anxious and a little stress sometimes as I consider myself a perfectionist and if a piece doesn’t come out the way I picture it in my head, I feel its shit.
Is this something you intend to do long term?
I’m not going to stop anytime soon
