Zalez (1985) | French | Street art
Former Fine Arts student Zalez's work revolve around the identity of the not-so-weak sex. A stencil and pencil master, he depicts a modernist and provocative vision of women, oftentimes in suggestive positions. This tends to shock and suprise the spectator, confronting him or her with the societal taboo that is sex. The woman by Zalez is aware of her sensual power, she plays with it but without degrading her integrity or comprising herself. Rather, she appears stronger than ever, in full control of her body and her destiny.
Halfway between classicism and street art, Zalez has experienced international recognition in the recent years, with exhibitions in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland or Spain.
