Zumi began painting in the streets of Buenos Aires in 2006, as one of the initial participants in a series of collective street art experiments called Expression Sessions. Her background in fashion design has contributed to the development of a unique style of muralism that is colorful and feminine.

In her outdoor work Zumi takes inspiration from zen philosophy and nature, combining flora and fauna in fantasy landscapes created in aerosol and latex paint. Through her artwork Zumi creates oases that recall the peace of natural surroundings amidst the noise and pollution of the city streets. Her indoor work predominantly features a stark palette of black and metalics in delicate geometric compositions of minimalistic painted line or sewn thread.

Zumi works on an independent as well as collective basis on and off the streets. She has painted in festivals and exhibited in galleries around the world including London Newcastle Project Space, Neurotitan Gallery (Berlin), and The Fridge (Washington, DC). She is currently based in San Pablo, Brazil.
