Zoe Bios Creative was founded in Silver Lake, California in 2011.

Zoe Bios Creative has coined the term ‘ArtEntouré’ to express a full circle cross-pollination of the art world with the design world. “Our fusion of art and design inspires a vitality of meaning in the everyday, hopefully provoking a higher consciousness in the way we live with, and make use of objects.”

ZBC’s is also a traverse across cultures, understanding how the relativity of meaning thrives along side the persistent universality of beauty. “We focus on the visual organization of new forms—chance arrangements and purposeful compositions. We want to inspire unconventional thinking, and creative design solutions while maintaining a mindful attention to beauty and contentment in every object that we offer…we are artists, curators, and collaborators.”

Uncontrollable Beauty: Notes on Beauty

“Nothing in itself, beauty may be a mental solvent that dissolves something else, melting it into radiance.” – Peter Schjeldahl

In the "Notes on Beauty" chapter from the book Uncontrollable Beauty, New Yorker magazine art critic, Peter Schjeldahl, refers to beauty as a surrendering and momentary process guided by an external object. It can be muted or intense, he says, but either way is something he dials in as an unexpected surprise with a hint of strangeness bringing pleasure to the mind. Referring to Charles Baudelaire’s identification of beauty as “a flash point between the fleeting and the eternal”, he states that beauty is a conviction of timelessness, peeling away ideas held to a specific time and place despite constantly appearing in new ones. And in essence, beauty is ambiguity melted away in a state of bliss, allowing the mind to open up to a truth. In Schjeldahl’s own words, “Insensibility to beauty may be an index of misery.” And as he references from John Keats famous poem, “Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty.”
