Artist of the Week - VinZ
VinZ is the name of one of the most original street artists out there at the moment. The works that VinZ creates are completely new, unique and astonishingly beautiful. Furthermore they carry a strong underlying message along the lines of Banksy, but executed in an entirely artistic form. VinZ creates human/animal hybrids that fight for civil rights. His collage pieces depict combinations of naked humans with birds, fish, bulls and reptiles, depending on their role in his artwork. While avian hybrids are the loving creatures; fish are symbols of consumerism; bulls are freedom fighter; and reptiles the oppressing force. The Birds are VinZ’s symbol for freedom, fighting for equality against everything that stands in their way. His artworks are a brave critique of the current global policies, which strive to artificially establish order in civil societies, but at the very high cost of personal freedom.
Spreading the Message
Theses last weeks and months VinZ has not only brought this politically significant and artistically valuable work to the streets but also to galleries around the globe. His recent body of work was exhibited at Urban Painting Gallery in Valencia and RexRomae in London and is now being exhibited at C.A.V.E. Gallery in LA. It goes to show that VinZ’s artwork has a universal language that has meaning to people everywhere in world. VinZ is an artists that wants to “change the world” and for everyone “To feel free. To love. To act. To think. To choose“. One must conclude that he is doing a good job in accomplishing his goals. VinZ is our Artist of the Week“
