Xanthi Skarla aka Zycrei

Xanthi is a Greek self-taught artist born in Cape Town-South Africa.

She is active in digital art and visual poetry. She processes images from her personal archive, affected by web aesthetics and internet culture. Camouflaged recursion is her art technique.

Her poems are an integrate part that works together with static image, animated gif or video.
Her work relies on abstraction and irony. It is a mind game of criticizing the existing post-truth age and deconstructing everything real related to individuals and society in digital age.

Like life itself includes the game of seduction, eroticism, thinking and human relations that is inherently non-transparent.

She creates artworks for the black of the white of the grey life in a society that is afraid of secrecy, darkness and diversity.
