For his first solo show at Nancy Victor, Zeus presents an exhibition of new works which explore urban compositions juxtaposing street art with architecture This eclectic mix of 3D and wall based sculpture illustrate a combination of contemporary fine art and graffiti techniques, producing an exciting array of innovative works.
London artist Zeus, was captivated by the hip-hop scene of the 80's and began expressing his creative talents as a teen on the streets of London. Throughout the 80's and 90's Zeus was commissioned by various club nights, warehouses and figures including Tim Westwood and Paul Oakenfold to design the interior for club nights, produce backdrops and create posters. He was one of the first graffiti artists to exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum before holding his first solo show at Westbourne Studios.
Zeus took his graffiti style and prolific writing into a three dimensional format after studying Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. Here he was able to reflect upon his background on the streets to fuse graffiti techniques, sculpture and typography into conceptual compositions.
