Zrinka Orr is an artist born in Croatia, who currently lives in USA.
Before age 9, her family moved 7 times around Croatia, Canada and Switzerland.
Zrinka finished art school in Zagreb, Croatia, then moved to USA where she graduated from Boston University with a degree in psychology and statistics.
In the beginning of the internet in the 1990's, Zrinka worked as a New Media Developer at the Prudential Tower in Boston.
She also taught life drawing and intaglio print making classes at the MIT student center in Cambridge MA.
While raising her two children, Zrinka had an alpaca farm in New Hampshire, then started her fashion design house with five boutiques all over New England, including Newbury Stret in Boston, Portland ME, Portsmouth NH, Concord MA, and Nashua NH.
She designed her clothing and manufactured in Peru, where she traveled often and extensively. Her label was sold exclusively in her boutiques.
After running her fashion label and boutiques for 15 years, Zrinka closed her clothing business and moved to Richmond, VA, where she opened her permanent cosmetics salon.
During the pandemic of 2020, Zrinka re-evaluated her life's trajectory and priorities, and decided to focus on her art.
As an artist who works in both traditional media and crypto NFT's, Zrinka is constantly exploring the intersection of these two worlds, and challenges viewers to see the world in a new and exciting way.
As an artist who works in mixed media, I am constantly exploring the intersection of tradition and innovation, abstraction and representation.
I am inspired by my travels, and by the unique and diverse cultures I encounter along the way.
Through my art, I strive to create work that is both visually stunning and emotionally resonant, and that inspires others to see the world in a new light.
As an artist, I am inspired by the limitless possibilities of creativity and freedom, and I am always seeking out new sources of inspiration.
I aim to strike a balance between beautiful and puzzling, familiar and strange, vibrant and uplifting, or muted and contemplative, and invite viewers on a journey of discovery and self-reflection.
Whether working in traditional media like oil, charcoal, ink, acrylic, pencil and encaustic, or the new crypto technology, I love to explore the possibilities of these new creative horizons, that challenge the viewers to consider the role of technology in art and society.
I am excited to be a part of this new and rapidly evolving medium, while embracing the traditional media, that are rich, tactile and expressive.
Through my art, I aim to inspire others to tap into their own creative potential and to experience the world in a new and exciting way.
