CHAZME 718 Art

CHAZME often constructs urbanised structures out of defined, geometrical areas. These dystopian compositions are comments and critiques on urban planning and architecture, which the passers-by are invited to decipher, reflect and maybe even oppose. On a visual level, they are always compositionally perfectly balanced and reflect the pattern of our modern skyscraper architecture.

Even though his studio work is more figurative, it still emits the artist’s unique aesthetic
