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 the French luxury brand, Louis Vuitton, 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.
