Zane Zlemeša

Zane Zlemeša draws, paints, makes comics and illustrations. Based between Latvia and Germany, she is currently studying illustration at the Art Academy of Leipzig.

My project for this residency is to make a comic about different modes of transportation. The story is inspired by transportation history and its development: while travel time is decreasing, the possibility to move is increasing. The main theme that this work will address is mobility and how people deal with it, why we travel, why we want to move to Mars, what is a journey and what is a destination. —Zane
