Myriam Zini (Rabat, Morocco, 1971) moved from France to Brazil in 2007 and currently lives and works in Montevideo, Uruguay. She participated in several collective exhibitions, such as the Xth Reconcavo Biennal Recôncavo among others and had her first individual, Lacrimogêneo, at the Zipper Gallery (Sao Paulo) in 2013. Her painting is inspired by real life, and often by extreme situations of human experience: social tension, conflicts and diverse confrontations.
