The paintings of native New Hampshire artist John-Paul Zarba are bold and high-concept. Many pieces center around the idea of freedom, a theme close to Zarba's heart inspired by his time in Saudi Arabia. Zarba doesn’t stick to one technique, instead preferring to adapt his painting method to whatever impression he seeks to convey. “As an artist, I have found that what I use to conceive the thought I see behind my eyes is not as important as the message I am speaking,” Zarba states. This willingness to explore new techniques gives Zarba’s paintings a sense of freshness and spontaneity. He finds inspiration everywhere and always has a notebook or scrap of paper handy to sketch out ideas. 

A civil engineer by trade, Zarba quit his job to pursue his passion for art. He says his truest aspiration is for his work to inspire others. “Art has connected many dots in my life. The pieces I create and journey I am on should serve as a testament to the possibilities of hard work and a true understanding of investigating who you are and why you are here.”
