Zevs is an anonymous contemporary French graffiti artist best known for his Liquidation series, in which he drips paint from recognizable Western logos  to transform known symbols to unstable images. Some of the famous logos that have been subjected to this process include Chanel, McDonalds, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Coca Cola and Apple. Zevs was an early member of the burgeoning graffiti scene, gaining notoriety from his street art and tagging in the 1990s. Like the Liquidation pieces, the majority of his work attacks commercialism. The first major survey of Zevs’ work was held in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, and he has since participated in exhibitions and performances worldwide, including the 2010 Moscow Biennial. He has exhibited regularly with De Buck Gallery in New York, and currently lives and works between Paris, France and Berlin, Germany.

Zevs é um grafiteiro francês contemporâneo anônimo, mais conhecido por sua série ‘Liquidation’, na qual pingava tinta de logotipos ocidentais conhecidos, transformando estes símbolos famosos em imagens instáveis. Alguns dos logotipos famosos que foram submetidos a esse processo incluem Chanel, McDonalds, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Coca Cola e Apple. Zevs foi um dos primeiros membros da crescente cena do graffiti, ganhando notoriedade com sua arte de rua e marcação nos anos 1990. Assim como as peças ‘Liquidation’, a maior parte de sua obra ataca o comercialismo. A primeira grande pesquisa do trabalho de Zevs foi realizada na Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek em Copenhagen, e desde então ele participou de exposições e performances em todo o mundo, incluindo a Bienal de Moscou de 2010. Ele expõe regularmente com a De Buck Gallery em Nova York e, atualmente, vive e trabalha entre Paris, França e Berlim, Alemanha.
