ARTIST OF THE WEEK #4 - DZIA

In his hometown of Antwerp, street artist Dzia is something of enigma – his animalistic murals pop up all over the city’s walls, breathing life into abandoned urban areas, as well as appearing in other cities all across Europe.

We’re a big fan of Dzia, so we asked him to take his art to the walls at our new store, UO Stuttgart. Check out his store mural below, along with our favourite picks from his body of work.

“From a young age art has always been a great interest to me. My uncle was an artist and my whole family have always been very creative. This passion carried me through my younger years until I eventually went on to study a masters in fine art at the Royal Academy in Antwerp.

After I graduated I really wanted place my artwork onto walls. I focused on creating a truly unique graphic style, using abstract and geometric lines to implement into animalistic forms. I’ve been painting on walls for around two and half years now.

New ideas come very easily to me, so my work is very spontaneous – I paint quickly and in-situ to make sure the original idea stays true to its form.”
