Lot Details

"Liquidated LV" is a dynamic silkscreenprint in colors by famous French urban and graffiti artist ZEVS from his iconic "liquidated logo" Series. This print measures 27.6 x 19.7 inches (70 x 50 cm) inches, is unframed and in excellent condition. This from an edition of 50.

ZEVS (France, b.1977) is a pioneering figure on the French street art scene. In the 1990s he was known for his shadows drawings in Paris. In 2002 he began his technique of "Visual Kidnapping," in which he would cut out the figures from billboard ads, an act of "kidnapping" the model and demanding ransom from the brand as a way of drawing attention to the absurd prices brands pay for advertising campaigns. By the mid-2000s, Zevs had become most famous for his "Liquidated Logos," which appropriate popular brand images and show them dripping with paint, as if melting off the wall. Zev's first major retrospective exhibition took place in 2008 at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, Denmark. Other Rcent solo exhibitions were held at De Buck Gallery, New York, NY (2011); Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France (2009); Art Statements, Hong Kong, China (2009); de Pury & Luxembourg Gallery, Zurich, Switzerland (2009); Ny Carlsberg Glypothek, Copenhagen, Denmark (2008); and Lazarides Gallery, London, UK (2007).

Note: Buyer prefers bank wire transfer as preferred form of payment.
