Artist: Zetta Kanta


Award-winning fiber artist Zetta Kanta is Melbourne

based; she works with wool and silk to create

impressionist style modern wallhangings and

tapestries that resemble more a painting than a non

woven fabric.

Her wallhangings are very tactile and highlight our

need to return to nature and feel its pulse.

Raw fibers, textures, and natural materials have always

fascinated Zetta.

‘They are beautiful in their original state, so it gives me a

confidence that the end result will be equally appealing

to the human eye. My works not only carry a statement

with visual impact, but also invite a tactile experience

provoking memories from a deeper subconscious level,

allowing us to reciprocate emotions that are familiar to

us, but lying dormant.

There is a story behind each piece. I make an emotion

that I carry and release in the world through this

window to carry the messages of the environment,

mindfulness and sustainability. Less is more: a cliché,

yet, so true.

My works are raw and totally natural. I hope to show

honesty and the wildness of our surroundings in my

work. This is of the utmost importance to me. Feelings of

unpretentiousness, nakedness, and fragility dwell in my

heart, yet strength and boldness seems to reflect in my


Zetta has successfully exhibited in Melbourne, Sydney

and Queensland and her works have traveled as far

as USA, Germany, and Asia
