"Visual kidnapping is like entering an interactive game: If the brand on the billboard kidnaps the attention of the public with the purpose of consumer demand, I reverse the situation and I kidnap the model on the poster and I demand a ransom of 500,000€ from the brand. This sum represents the symbolic price of an advertising campaign for the brand. Interview with Pingmag, 11 August 2008
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
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 them from the known to the unstable. Some of the famous logos that have been subjected to this process include Chanel, McDonald's, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Coca Cola, and Apple. Born in France in 1977, 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. “I consider artistic expression to be an opposing force based on power of itself,” he has said. “I reverse the power to change the flow at my advantage.” 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. Zevs currently lives and works between Paris, France and Berlin, Germany.
