"Zarum is a painter and sculpture with a unique original and captivating style. The ‘Art of Zarum’, critics say, is a blend of mystical, sensual and emotional outreach. The art is fresh, bold, imaginative and stimulating. It has been described as a crossroads between Picasso and Appel with a dash of aboriginal influence, but nevertheless original. The works exude a passion for love, relationships and soulful intimacy, with a touch of humor — tasteful, colorful, stylistic and commercially viable." 

"Zarum’s work has been shown in Canada, the US and in Europe to great acclaim.  Most of the works have sold mostly to private collectors at highly respectable prices which reflect not only a belief in the current value of the work, but to its increasing value as the acclaim grows.  Zarum is a Canadian with roots around the world." 

"If Karel Appel would meet Picasso, add a bit aboriginal influence and there is Zarum. Very good and very different, that's what it is." (Niek de Kruif) 

"Zarum combines in an original manner brutal, bold, lively, anxious, glad and provocative expressions with round, sensual forms, and interlaced with a generous amount of  humor. Thus he creates his very own worldview in which people and feelings hold a central position."

"The core qualities that Zarum holds deep -from his instant flashes of imagery that take him into a creative utopia for weeks to his ability to never run out of colour, to the pride he holds in being able to truly commit to a vision he believes in- is what makes him a true artist with original and collectable works."

"Walking through his exhibition one cannot help but to be captured by the joy of being alive that radiates from his paintings and unfurls all around the room. Curiosity striken, one is then carried by a sense of craving from one painting to the next. It is not difficult for the educated eye to identify which artists have influenced Zarum in his work, yet his individuality and personal style definately dominate the final image and make it recognizable as 'ZARUM' art."

"Built to be viewed at and from, this 13,000 sq. ft. waterfront showpiece on Millionaires Row on the north shore of Kempenfelt Bay boasts three storeys of wall-to-wall windows that make it quite literally a shining example of modern design.  “To me, it's a landmark property,” reflects homeowner Zarum, an internationally renowned artist who personally oversaw every aspect of the 1.49-acre estate's two-year design and build process".

Zarum is not only an artist but he is also an avid art collector.  Here he is visiting Pop Art icon Peter Max at his New York City studio and taking possession of two original paintings by Peter to add to his private collection.

Zarum and Max deep in discussion.
