Saatchi Gallery is currently hosting ‘XX: A Moment in Time’, a show that features female street and graffiti artists from around the globe. The exhibition runs until March the 6th.
Zabou, a graduate of MA Fine Art Digital was invited to paint a mural inside the Saatchi Store. The piece is entitled IN ART WE TRUST and is visible at all times when the gallery is open.
Zabou is an exciting street art talent who, since bursting onto the scene in 2012 has been gaining a growing reputation for her sharp stencil based art. Originally from France but based in London, her work can be found all over the East End, one of the world’s top places to see high quality street art.
Her work is striking; her images are a mixture of stencil and freehand technique, combining both sharp lines and soft shades. She plays on stereotypes and pokes fun at conformity, from spray painting nuns to satirical takes on the surveillance state.
Her work has steadily been gaining a reputation with invites to take part in shows, and to paint, coming from all around Europe. It’s a reputation which has also led to her gaining the attention of thought leading speech organisation TED where she gave presented her views on the benefits of street art in aiding community regeneration.
Limited edition hand finished screen prints of (s)Pray – Gold are available for the duration of the show in Saatchi Store.
