ZOOK!

 

Taiwanese Artist, ZOOK!’s visual language is heavily influenced by his immediate surroundings. He draws on Traditional Taiwanese imagery and seamlessly blends it with modern street culture. Like so many in the the Graffiti world, ZOOK! found his first canvasses in the streets, developing his skill in back alleys, and on abandoned buildings.


Today ZOOK! has made a place for himself in the rapidly growing local scene. His characters are easily recognizable with their large, rounded faces; reminiscent of the Buddha, but they have been twisted to depict the gritty face of Taiwanese gangsterism.

ZOOK!

台灣藝術家,ZOOK!的視覺語言深受環境所影響。 他利用傳統的台灣形象,將其與現代街頭文化完美融合。 像塗鴉世界的人一樣,ZOOK! 在街頭找到了他的第一個畫布,也在後巷和廢棄的建築上發展了專業本領。現今ZOOK! 在迅速發展的當地風氣中為自己騰出一席之地。 他的代表性人物大圓臉也很容易被辨識,讓人聯想到佛陀,以佛陀的形象描繪傳統社會的草根人物,與其街頭文化跟傳統人文社會連結。
