Born in Massachusetts in 1927, Zacharias arrived in New York in 1956 and joined the downtown art scene. Through the 60′s he was part of the Tenth Street Cooperative Gallery Movement, showing in collective and one-man shows. He also assisted many notable artist including Willem de Kooning. His long and still-unfolding career has produced an impressive breadth of work that is, as Zacharias describes, “rooted in the spatial traditions of modern, abstract painting.”
He has exhibited in New York, the Hamptons, Amsterdam and Tokyo and his works are held in important collections throughout the US. Zacharias currently lives and works in East Hampton, NY.
