Zak Ove was born in London. He assisted his father on numerous film shoots through his teens, before gaining a BA in ”Films as fine art” from St. Martin’s school of art in London. In more recent years, Zak Ove has been concentrated on protography as ”fine art”.
With his most recent exhibition ”Past Future” at Freies Museum in Berlin, Zak Ove invites his viewer into a surreal space, haunted by strange figures, colours and people in transformations. It seems a bit like a big patchwork – a reconstruction of the world – in a surreal way, involving recognizable pieces and styles from Trinidad to London.
