Let Ellen Zaks guide you to catch a poem

Allow poetry to help you access the deep self while in solitude


Ellen Zaks is a widely exhibited, London born artist and performance poet. Her paintings explore the dynamism of the human body in time and space. She is fascinated by mythology and the strange world of quantum physics. Each of her practices informs the other…


“My paintings are thought-forms knit together upon the horizon of intent…my poems are photons streaming...” She has shown her paintings and performed her poetry in the UK and Spain. She also choreographed and performed in multi-media shows based on her poetry in Brighton festivals. Her art is currently on show at The Shard, London, UK.
