Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Frequently referred to as France’s own Banksy, Zevs is an anonymous street artist, renowned for his trademarked ‘liquidation’ practice – this liquidation technique involves Zevs recreating a well-recognised logo, such as Google, and allowing the paint to run, a technique that Zevs has described as an investigation into the logo’s visual power: “It’s a simple gesture, just as in Aikido when you reverse the power and change the flow of energy.” 

 « I consider artistic expression to be an opposing force based on power of itself. I reverse the power to change the flow at my advantage. »
- Zevs
Zevs’ work has also received recognition for its frequent attack on commercialism and advertisement – one of his most notable pieces involved him cutting out a model on an advertisement billboard for Lavazza, and filling the hole with the statement: ‘VISUAL KIDNAPPING – PAY NOW!’
 
 « The names Zevs is about something a bit different. Zevs was the code-name for the suburban train that almost crushed me when I was writing in a dark railway tunnel as a kid. »
- Zevs
 
he has likened this to a reversal of consumer demand on behalf of the brands; just as the brand has kidnapped the consumer’s attention, he has kidnapped the brand’s model and demanded a ransom.

What is pop-art?

What is pop-art?

Refers to an art movement that began in Britain in 1955 and late 1950s in the U.S. It challenged fine arts tradition by including popular culture imagery such as news and advertising. Pop art sometimes isolates and removes a material from its context and combines it with another unrelated material. This concept refers much to the attitudes that resulted in it and not on the art itself. Pop art employs comic books, advertising and other mass culture aspects. It is interpreted to have come as a reaction to abstract expressionism dominant ideas.
