Zac Roger Yeates
My name is Zac Roger Yeates, I am a self-taught mixed media painter who was born and raised in Western Australia in 1997. In 2018 I decided to move to Berlin where I studied film production. In June of 2020, I finished my studies and received a Diploma in Film Production from Catalyst Institute.
I have only started painting recently but have already made many accomplishments I am proud of inducing exhibiting in two different galleries in Vilnius, Lithuania and in a couple of online galleries.
The driving force behind my artwork is the desire to explore atmospheric worlds that have a sense of familiarity but give the viewer a feeling of uncanniness. The figures who live in the world of the painting—those are the faces I want to capture.
I was born with a cleft lip. It is an awakening, being born with a feature always seen as an imperfection. This is where my fascination began with imperfections and the subjects who possess them. My art is a way of communion and communication
