D. W. Zinsser was born in 1989 in New York. They studied drawing and printmaking at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, and has worked in many prominent print shops in the city. Zinsser pulls from their experience as a master printer to create intricate drawings in pen and ink, watercolor, silkscreen and intaglio. Their works on paper explore paradoxes of embodiment, probe myths of beauty, ability, and age, and suggest a radical redistribution of normative values. Zinsser has shown at galleries such as Harkawik, Essex Flowers, Moisturizer and Secret Project Robot as well as the Satellite Art Fair in Miami.
