Zahyr Lauren: Where Beauty Reigns: Visual Meditations

October 3 - December 19

Free
A vibrant and incredibly complex illustration of various intersecting and overlapping shapes and lines, predominantly in greens, blues, oranges, reds, black, and white.

Zahyr Lauren, also known as The Artist L.Haz, creates in order to share light and love with community. Each piece is a time period of meditative peace for Zahyr. All of Z’s original artwork is hand-drawn.

Z is the youngest of four siblings from San Jose, California. Z comes from a powerful, southern Black matriarchy that migrated from Oklahoma and Mississippi to California with nothing, and made something for generations to come.
Z is a West Coast-based artist, humanstorian, former Human Rights Investigator, and former Attorney, who began drawing in 2015.

The practice of meditative art, for Z, has become a mental and emotional salve, helping to cope with the trauma of coming from the injustice system’s most heavily targeted community. The practice provides a meditative reprieve from the world, and the artist hopes the work engulfs other people in the same kind of peace that was felt during each work’s creation.
