Notes


“Graffiti artists and military personnel have a lot in common - we both spray our ammunition. But paint is a bit less deadly and can be used as a force for good.” - Zedsy

The anonymous British artist Zedsy’s work has appeared at Banksy’s Dismaland and Tate Modern, yet little is known about the elusive street-art figure. Zedsy utilises a stencil aesthetic with spray and acrylic paint to produce murals, paintings, prints and ephemera.

Using imagery taken from pop culture, such as Disney characters or Andy Warhol’s 'Campbell’s Soup Can', Zedsy makes irreverent and satirical comments on contemporary life, consumerism and politics. The Campbell’s tomato soup can has a reduced-price sticker; Snow White is absorbed in her iPhone.

In 2022, Zedsy staged an intervention at The Louvre, installing an altered version of a Claude Monet painting titled 'Needle in a Haystack' in the galleries.
