  • She leaves us with more questions than answers. She rocks a room & makes every head turn her way. We admire her. We {secretly} envy her. There is no denying it, she possesses that IT Factor!

    A Stroke of Pink
  • The perfect example of someone being as weird as they want to be, working as hard as possible and being able to live. She may not have the luxury of free time, but no one could look at Zoetica’s life and say she isn’t truly living.

    Morbid Fashion

My name is Zoetica Ebb. I’m a Moscow-born, LA-raised artist, writer, and photographer, dedicated to proving that life is as beautiful as we make it.

Right now, I live in London and am working on Alien Botany — a multimedia art series dedicated to beastly flora and antique botanical illustration. Alien Botany is series of hyper-detailed concept drawings, fine art prints, capsule fashion collections.

My previous projects include The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing – a video travel guide series giving insight into the skyrocketing alternative art, fashion, music, and nightlife culture in Beijing. On this project, I function as curator, co-director and host. The initial phase of The Secret Guide was funded through Kickstarter. This is my second Kickstarter effort – in 2011, I raised $8,400 for D4RT – a project aiming to bring art classes and supplies to a developing village in the Peruvian Amazon jungle, where I taught an introductory kids’ art workshop and, together with village locals, painted a mural on the school wall.

In 2011, I launched GHST RDR – my first foray into fashion design in collaboration with Adriana Fulop of Toronto label, Plastik Wrap. GHST RDR is a mini-collection consisting of an architectural, retro-futuristic jacket-and-skirt combo, inspired by Victorian riding fashion and anime robots.

I’ve also worked as a culture writer and photographer for RedBull’s Chinashop Magazine [RIP], specializing in urban exploration and art coverage. I visited independent businesses and the studios of fellow artists and fashion designers, documenting creative spaces and conducting interviews. From 2007 to 2012 I was part of Coilhouse – a magazine and blog I co-founded, billed as “a love letter to alternative culture”. During my time with Coilhouse, I functioned as co-editor, project manager, merchandise designer, writer, and illustrator, interviewing Clive Barker and Grant Morrison among many other luminaries.

I’m an infrequent contributor to Haute Macabre.
