It’s almost a decade ago when Zevs was arrested for illegally adorning a shop façade with a dripping Chanel logo. The Paris-based graffiti artist certainly knows how to raise his profile with what he does best, creating a little notoriety that never hurts. But with his return to Hong Kong, Zevs exposure is a tad more respectable, thanks to a major solo exhibition at Over The Influence gallery. It’s the artist’s first showcase since the aforementioned incident in 2009, and not surprisingly, it’s a high-profile event that puts on display a range of new works and selected pieces he has created in the past.

Zevs is renowned for his signature Liquidation series in which he disfigures highly recognizable logos into deconstructed forms, and this show builds on that reputation. His newest series of works explores the relationship between powerhouse brands Louis Vuitton and Supreme, and consists of new canvas works, installation pieces, performance and sculpture. The show aims to be a critique of the incestuous nature of the brand collab and the sexualized desire of consumers to get their hands on the products (on through Aug 4). Location: Over The Influence, 159 Hollywood Road (Central).
