ZEVS is best known for his trademark liquidation technique, in which he transforms solid images into dripping impressions. Here, he comments on the widespread influence of Hollywood on contemporary culture. While one instantly recognizes its iconic logo, ZEVS combines Pop Art’s appropriation of popular culture in a manner reminiscent of Andy Warhol and his street art mentality to both highlight and overthrow the very essence of contemporary culture.

Born Christopher Aguirre Schwarz, ZEVS (French, b. 1977) is an influential and innovative street artist. Entering the scene in the 1990s, he created a new technique called “reverse graffiti,” in which the artist strips dirty walls to reveal clean murals. He is also known for his “liquidations”—dripping logos and symbols that remind viewers that, though dominant in contemporary culture, popular brands will not last forever. ZEVS murals and prints have been exhibited worldwide.
