Born in 1961, Zt Tosha's creative work was largely influenced by the 1980s. The generation of artists that grew up in, and took inspiration from, the nineteen eighties was influenced by a period of rapidly growing global capitalism, political upheaval, notable wealth discrepancy, global mass media and distinctive music and fashion, including electronic pop music and hip hop.
The 1980s was the era of African famine, the height of the Cold War, and also the end of it, as marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall. significant art movements of the era include Neo Geo, The Pictures Generation and the global trend of Neo-Expressionism which manifested in Germany, the USA and Italy (where it was known as Transavanguardia).
"It is clear that the development of new means of communication changes our sense of reality. The media convey stories of memory and identity in dominant and meaningful portrayals of reality. Social media allows us to skip traditional media and establish relationships with the audience directly." ZT Tosha
