Zoer (1985, FR).
Zoer (Fréderic Battle) graduated from Strate School of Design (Paris) in 2008. Since then he has been invited to create murals in several cities around the world, including Bilbao, Seattle, Mexico City, Hong Kong and Moscow, to name a few. Among other places, his artwork has been exhibited at Kaikai Kiki Gallery (Tokyo), Vancouver Art Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon. His painting is collected by renowned contemporary artist Takashi Murakami.
Passionate about comics and the car industry, Zoer started drawing manufactured objects since he was very young. He discovered graffiti in 2002 and quickly stood out due to his unique approach combining deconstructed typographies and mechanical elements taken from the iconography of architecture and the car world. This practice made him gradually become one the most prominent emerging muralists in Europe.
Invited to paint breathtaking murals all other the world, Zoer finds inspiration in the local elements. At the genesis of his murals there are objects found at the scene, like metaphors of a reality in which we identify ourselves questioning the disorder of the everyday contemporary world.
