EZK

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) :

It looks like easy to do but it needs a lot of creativity. What does Uber té Égalité fatalite mean?

Yeah you're right I have to explain this one as this is about French history. Liberté, égalité, fraternité (Liberty, equality, fraternity) is the French motto after the Revoltion (1789). EZK changed it by Uberte, Égalité, Fatalité (Fatality) to denounce precarious jobs as the deliverymen working for Uber Eats.

@shimozurdo maybe it´s easy but it needs more than just creativity. you need a lot of self-discipline, organizing and motivation to be a constant part at the street. it´s not just doing one thing and you´re be famous.

awesome stuff. i like all the works, especially the part of social criticism.

Yep EZK is an artist to follow.

Very nice! Little diamonds. If you just walk and look down or only on the mobile you woudn´t recognize it. Keep your eyes open! Thanks for showing and reminding. We have to remind each other more and more to just look around. Because we get more and more stucked on devices. I always get a smile when I look and observe and I see one of these creative little arty messages. A lot of times only seeing one of those while passing by in the morning, it just made my day.

It's great to discover unnoticed art piece as slightly modified road signs, hidden collages... As you said, it made my day too when I see one (wondering how I didn't notice it earlier).
