Zevs The Big Oil Splash
French artist Zevs (aka Aguirre Schwarz), renowned for his "liquidation" technique, is back in the spotlight with a new solo show, The Big Oil Splash.
The exhibition, hosted at Lazarides Rathbone, will present a new series of works in which the artist attacks globalisation and targets the logos of international brands, their graphic and emotional power and their global ubiquity through an artistic intervention. The distortion of those omnipresent symbols comments on their worldwide power, but also suggests that they might not be as stable as they appear.
As one of the top pioneering French street artists, Zevs has participated extensively in international performances and exhibitions, including solo shows at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum (Denmark), CCA Andratx foundation (Spain) and the De Buck Gallery (USA).
