Artist - DZIA

DZIA est un artiste belge, originaire d’Anvers. Ses créations s’étendent de la peinture, à la sculpture et l’installation ainsi qu’à l’art urbain et aux fresques murales. Il est également le créateur du fanzine KRANK.
Ses peintures animales apparaissent sur les murs de nombreuses villes, insufflant la vie dans des zones urbaines abandonnées en Belgique mais aussi à travers toute l’Europe.

«Depuis le plus jeune âge, j’ai un grand intérêt pour l’art. Mon oncle était un artiste et toute ma famille a toujours été très créative. Cette passion m’a amené à faire un master en art à l’Académie royale d’Anvers. Après mon diplôme, je voulais vraiment placer mes oeuvres sur les murs. Je me suis concentré sur la création d’un style graphique vraiment unique, en utilisant des lignes abstraites et géométriques pour les mettre en formes animales. Je peins des murs depuis environ deux ans et demi maintenant. De nouvelles idées me viennent continuellement, donc mon travail est très spontané - je peins rapidement et in situ pour m’assurer que l’idée originale reste fidèle à sa forme.»
