Zerbini uses a rich and luminous palette on a range of different subject matter from landscapes, cityscapes, and domestic scenes to those with a more obscure or even abstract intention. By juxtaposing styles and techniques, organic and geometric patterns, fields of light and shadow, he creates optical effects that beckon for contemplation. He is an artist that constantly multiplies the formal possibilities related to his painting and rejects any potential stagnation of established formula, making it difficult to define any linearity in his production.

In 1982 he graduated in Fine Arts from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo. At an early age he studied painting with José Van Acker and later studied photography with Carlos Moreira and watercolour with Dudi Maia Rosa.

A member of the so-called Generation 80, which promoted painting again as the main medium, many of his early works are paintings. He has since worked with sculpture, video, drawing and photography. In 1984 participated in the famous exhibition ‘Como vai você, geração 80?' at Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro. In 1995, he received the Grand Prize of criticism in the visual arts category of Art Critics of São Paulo Association (APCA).
