Contemporary French urban artist, he has been known since the 1990s for his various Street Art works, notably in Paris. The pseudonym ZEVS — pronounced Zeus — was chosen in reference to the name of the RER (regional express network) A ZEUS, which almost crushed him in 1992 while he working on a graffiti. A complementary interpretation makes the pseudonym an acronym: Visual and Sound Experiment Zone. (in French: Zone d'Expérimentation Visuelle et Sonore)

In the late 1990s, he formed with Space Invader, a mini collective, the @nonymous. Duo making small videos, they co-invaded the city of Montpellier together in August 1999. To his partner's mosaics, Zevs responds with "surlignations" first by bulging a coat of arms (a stormy cloud from which two flashes spring where the Z, E, V and S are read) and then by silhouetted the shadows to the ground with a silver line. elements of street furniture. At the Exhibition Street Art at Agnes b. In 2001, the @nonymous teamed up with André. A video shows the three of them intervening on the façade of the dilapidated ‘Le Diplomate’ hotel on Rue Oberkampf in Paris. This period is documented in Banksy's make the wall! during the kelly Watch the Stars music sequence, a 1998 hit by the band Air. In 2014 release of a biography written by Toke Lykkeberg, Zevs: The execution of an image in Gallimard editions in the Alternatives collection.

A catalogue was published on this occasion ‘Aguirre Schwarz au pays de l'or noir’ with texts by Elisabeth Couturier, Judicael Lavrador, Alain Broders and Toke Lykkeberg.

He exhibited at the Château de Vincennes in 2016. "Black Eclair"6 is the most important exhibition of the artist in France who had free hand to install his works in the fortress.

  • Good auction price, but yellowing visible on every page; condition report should be more specific, not merely 'very good'.

    user-c922cd4 July 30, 2019

  • Fabulous Poster! I have been trying to get one for some time now so am delighted. I know it is creased a little, but this can be ironed out before framing so very chuffed to own another of his works!!
