Zevs

Zevs (pronounced "Zeus", like the king of the Greek gods) is one of the most politicised artists within Lazarides' already partisan roster.

The Parisian is an inspired practitioner of street work. Besides the Liquidation project, his trademark techniques include using steam cleaners to create images on dirty walls during a graffiti crackdown in his native city, and invisible ink paintings only visible under UV light. These invisible ink pieces include a portrait of the 9/11 hijackers in the room they stayed in the night before their fateful act.

Zevs' Liquidated Logo series is arguably the most direct and recognisable example of street art culture jamming. He is prominently featured in Oscar-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. After many years of public activity his work has garnered considerable attention from France's "high art" establishment, blurring as it does the line between street pieces, conceptual art, and good old-fashioned angry vandalism.
