Biography / Zio Ziegler

American artist Zio Ziegler is a sculptor and painter based in San Francisco. Armed with a paintbrush, he creates open-ended with a tribal aesthetic to it. The works are created in such a way that the viewer interprets his works in their own personal way. Ziegler’s works can be found on their collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/12 in 2017.

Born in 1988, his art education was based on two prestigious institutions, Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design, where in 2010, he graduated with a Bachelor in Arts in 2010. Ziegler produces his works on canvas as well as on walls, creating sophisticated graffiti pieces, influenced by ancestral cultures, containing items such as tribal masks and mix of vividly drawn people and animals in geometric environments. He describes that the influences of his works are not inspired nor influenced by the defining history or mood of a particular period of history; but instead, they emerge from the abyss of his mind, like an amalgamation of different cultures, religions and languages.
