Eric ZeKing aka EZK is a French street artist based in Paris. His project « Art Against Poverty » is about the problem of distribution of wealth in the World. He makes stencils denouncing these problems by diverting the name of the luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Dior, Apple... His work is very interesting.
On this work, you sell all the problems of the rich countries. Dans quel monde Vuitton ? can be translate In what world do we live? but we lost the power of this sentence because we lost the homophony between Vuitton and vit-on (we live). And someone wrote Degage (Get Out) on the stencil, the reception of underprivileged populations (and in this case even a child) remain very polarizing subjects... More about his work (pics from his Instagram, worth a visit) :
Great one, powerful message...
qWErT is based in London known for his funny character, a kind of insect with big eyes...
