Zoë Sua Kay

Zoë Sua Kay is a painter who was born in Portugal. Inasmuch as large-scale portraiture can be used to intensify emotional and psychological tension, her hyper-amplified paintings depict the minutiae of dilated human skin, navigating the thin line between empathy and discomfort. She lived in London prior to moving to New York in 2012 to undertake an MFA at the New York Academy of Art. Her work has shown internationally, including in the UK, China, Italy, and New York. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, as well as being selected for the New American Paintings MFA Annual edition in 2015. Her work have been featured in numerous international publications, including O Público, LuxWOMAN, RTP (Portugal), Fine Art Connoisseur, artistkick, Don’t Panic, UNDO Magazine, Vogue (Italy), IO Donna (Italy) and The New York Times. She is based in New York City and New Jersey. For more information, visit zsuakay.com
