Zakharov's art unveils the complex layers of interaction, where the tangible and virtual worlds intertwine, illuminating the multifaceted nature of human experience in a technologically saturated reality.He deeply engage with the fundamental aspects of human existence and strive to establish a dialogue between digital constructs, innovative technologies, and primordial themes. His works serve as a poignant reminder that our understanding of the world is simultaneously extensive and restricted. By challenging our preconceptions and welcoming the enigmatic mysteries beyond our grasp, his works invites to step into the unknown.

The artist’s progressive approach finds its roots in his experience as musician and VJ as well as in his early projects in zoological specimen. His diverse experiences liaise in Zakharov’s works and produce a unique mixture of abstract shapes and organic structures.
