Artist
Beijing, China

Zachary Bako
“Once I stop becoming fascinated with this city, it is on to the next.”
Being able to profit from passion (or, if we're being more realistic, survive to create another day) is the elusive oasis on the horizon for many young artists,
Since 2005, 31 year-old Zachary Bako has been able to earn a living as an artist–an award-winning, artist, at that. Though he has spent most of his life in his native Ohio, his youth gave him a larger sense of the world that would inspire his art and travel.
“I spent a lot of time when I was young on my grandfather's vegetable farm in Ohio, but also in Al Bright's studio, a Youngstown native who is an internationally renowned Abstract Expressionist painter...Being exposed to his studio at a young age had a lasting impression on me. Picking beans, not so much.”
Zachary's art has taken him to Malibu, Manhattan, Japan, and Colombia, to name but a few destinations on his itinerary. He now finds himself in Beijing, where he documents each day amidst the bustle.
“Things got a little stale in NY, so I decided to switch it up a bit...I document whatever I connect to.”
If you need a soundtrack to Zachary's photos (or “if you are taking off on your last connecting flight at dusk and have a window seat with 18+ hours of traveling under your belt”), listen to The xx's “Intro.” If you ever get to have a beer with Zachary, he'll have some other suggestions for you.
