Zaira D’Agata was born in Catania in 1978. She graduated in Scenography in 2014 at the Academy of Fine Arts of Catania. During her studies, she focused on book restauration and 3D architectural modeling for cultural heritage sites. However, drawing has always been her passion, which she started practicing in 1999, as street artist. Her first exhibition “La mostra dei mostri” (The Exhibition of Monsters) took place in 2006 at the occupied space A.U.R.O. in Catania.

She is a figurative artist that expresses through her work her observations on men and the outside world.

In 2017 she experimented with a Wordpress website, to “give color to her idea all the more seriously”.
