It was Picasso who once said, “I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” Following in the footsteps of the cubist master, #mastriusartist ZACH KRASNER takes the very same approach.
L.A.-based portrait and figurative artist, Zach largely learned his craft by repetitively replicating pieces by the masters. “By the 10th copy, no brushstroke is not on purpose, in my mind. And after that, there’s something embedded; I take a little piece of that into my own style.”
Along with a fast-paced career in the startup world of design and tech, Zach consistently walks the line of investing time in doing what he loves. “There’s never a good time for it, which is what I realized. It’s not an excuse to not do it. You really have to make time for it.”
After studying art in France, Zach began the balancing act by renting a bunk bed in San Francisco near his day job and attending art classes at night. He eventually worked his way to renting his own studio space, keeping the dream alive.
