At the same time, she continued activities in the painting, which has begun from her childhood. She started her participation in solo and group exhibitions since she was a child 6 year. Took part of worldwide exhibitions and Art Fair. Her work was in British GQ (VOGUE House), World Wide Art Books ‘’CURRENT MASTERS’’ USA, ‘’Inspiration: INTERNATIONAL ART BOOK’’ UK, ‘’Circle Foundation of the arts’’ France. Also, her works are in different private collections, as: USA, United Kingdom, Greece, Georgia, Russia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Italy and Morocco
The art of Zeiko Duka is evolving incessantly. Her masterful manipulation of light and dark and the fluidity of forms seem like a pictorial portrayal of music sonata. She depicts her dreams and imagination in a symphony of color palette, that burst out of the canvas or paper with the emotional force of the spring.
She depicts semi-figurative human shapes in sensuous, flesh-toned circles. Her imagery is as mysterious and ephemeral as a dream. She blends dimensional planes in dramatic, sweeping movements, avoiding mundane detail and giving the neoclassical works a surreal quality. As the plot unfolds, the veneer is stripped away and the fundamental, basic truth is revealed to the viewer in a crescendo of free – flowing color.
La Gitana 44 x 34 cm oil on canvas

The Zeiko's style is harmonic mix of Modernism, Impressionism, Abstract painting and like photorealism and surrealism, are all part of her art family. She has always managed to slip away from the real modernism definitions, had to draw a line, radical way of thinking by own way, with no boundaries set by traditional method. The thin brush strokes, common and ordinary subjects, unusual angles are some features of Zeiko's style of art painting.
Thirst for life 100 x 50 oil on canvas

She illustrates human life, but not in the truest of forms, and can be classified as her abstract art. This is a real product of radical thought. Every object on the canvas or paper is represented as either colors and or shapes. A simple shape on the painting can do many wonders, might augment the shape with some simple exaggerations. Sometimes, the shape is scaled down to produce the effect she wants. The colors on the images represent emotions and shapes symbolize objects.
In Zeiko's multiform art you will find traces of abstract thinking in Abstract and Surrealism. This is actually a movement that sprouted in many forms of her visual artworks.
