About the Artists

Max Zorn

With a surgeon’s scalpel for a brush, Max Zorn (NL) is an artist who uses ordinary brown packing tape as his medium and a scalpel as a brush. Rising to fame in 2011 as an urban artist because of his exclusive use of tape art on street lamps, in an impressively short timeline Zorn moved to solo exhibitions and an international resume spanning innovative projects from Art Basel in Hong Kong and Miami to downtown Bangkok and Dubai. Zorn has become established for his freehand craftwork and the vividness of his sepia-toned creations. His ability to shape layers upon layers of tape on acrylic glass that, when illuminated from behind reveal contrasts and warmth, is simply unique. The fusion between the awe of material and intricate detail in craft has led him to the stages of TED Talks, BBC and CNN. With his unmistakable way to compose cinematic settings, Zorn pulls the spectator into his motifs and encourages his audience to continue his story.

Marco “ZED1” Buressi

ZED1 (IT) hails from Tuscany with an evolution of nostalgic surrealism exhibited on an international level with galleries and urban projects stretching from Tokyo to Wynwood Walls, Miami. His subjects mimic dazed and dreamy marionettes with artistic skills in acrylic and aerosol that transcend from ten-story walls to delicate works on paper and canvas, keeping each piece unique and equally intriguing. Since 1998 his work gracefully combines distorted characters with softness and serenity, simultaneously overshadowing his detailed works with an underlying mood and message. With his satirical style of melancholy and wistfulness, ZED1 echoes a fabled dream that his worldwide audience and clients find strangely familiar and undoubtedly fascinating. The ability to strike a chord of pleasant wonder with clients and art lovers has only propelled his profession further into the eyes and interests of the freshest branches in contemporary art.

Dean “ZEUS” Colman

London artist Dean “Zeus” Colman (UK) has been drawing inspiration from urban culture to create dynamic, experimental compositions that have re-defined graffiti art since the 1980s, and have led to fine art collaboration projects with Prince Charles, Paul Oakenfold and the Beastie Boys to name a few. Zeus has continually pushed the boundaries of his niche artistry, taking the form out of its traditional setting and into new perspectives. His latest works represents an innovative fusion of 3D techniques and typography, fine art and sculpture, and reflect both his background on the streets and his formal training at Chelsea College of Art. The approach can be a clean and clever canvas, or mixed media crafted with extreme yet subtle detail, and glazed with a quirky wit that seems to stand at the foundation of all artworks as a solid, unforgiving instrument of identity.

Daniel “Besok” Doebner

Daniel Doebner (aka “Besok”) (DE) is an Amsterdam-based artist with such a musical eye for magical realism that it has made him one of the most melodious artists to blossom from the European urban art scene. His passion for soulful subjects in song can transition through different bodies, from birds to Dizzy Gillespie and dreamy divas. His series are inspired by emotions derived from deeply-rooted jazz, hip hop, rhythm and blues. Doebner is a master at playfully combining organic characters with elements of sound that often go overlooked. His combination of acrylic and aerosol drips create a vintage look that, when place on jute canvas, bring a sense of a rustic natural to his portraits on sepia-toned palates. The faces and instruments portrayed meet as if there is a dialog, a struggle, a romance, a desire. Background coloration are from stains of coffee grounds, carefully blended to give a vintage foundation beneath the subjects.
