Embassy Hotel Arts Gallery on May 29, 2015. The event’s name is a concept the combines Chinese and Creole using the Chinese character 禅 (chan, Zen) and Zenn in Creole, which means young people.
The exhibition features 13 student pieces each inspired by both Chinese and Seychelles and was officially opened on May 15 to members of both the Chinese and Seychellois governments. The students biography and inspiration can be found on the Zenn site.
Juliette Zelime, studied in China and Seychelles under Fine Arts. This is what she had to say:
I’m an artist, designer, islander all in one. Culture, tradition and nature influence my artwork and my main source of inspiration is life itself. Surrealism had great influence on my early art works and lately conceptual and installation art as well. Curiosity has brought me to experiment with many mediums and techniques while studying and practicing visual arts, so I use whichever medium I feel best convey my message at the time of execution, for I believe there’s no limit to personal expression. Visual Arts can help make a difference in this world and it’s my responsibility to lend a hand.
