Artist Biography - Zeus

Dean Zeus Colman is a British artist born in 1968. He is one of many placed in the long tradition of the street art scene. During the 80s, the artists middle name became his tag. Around this period, Tim Westwood invited Zesus to make a design for his new Hip Hop Club called Spatz, leading Zeus to become a high profile member of London's street art scene.
Zeus has also been c
...ommissioned to make backdrops and posters for artists signed to Paul Oakenfold's label Def Jam, including Dougie Fresh and Whizz Kid. With the outbreak of house music, Zeus received more commissions from the warehouse clubs such as West World at the Brixton Academy in London.
More recently, Zeus is working with numerous community centres throughout London in order to teach young offenders graffiti techniques. His aim is to establish graffiti art as a positive vent for the energies and creativity of teenagers. This ambition has led to him teaching for Prince Charles as part of the Princes Trust initiative.
For the past 24 years, London artist Zeus has been drawing inspiration from urban culture to create dynamic, experimental compositions that have re-defined graffiti art.

Captivated by the hip-hop scene of the 80s, he began expressing his creative talents on the street when he was just 14, using walls, trains, and open spaces as his galleries.

Since then Zeus has continually pushed the boundaries of graffiti artistry, taking the form out of its traditional setting and into new, exciting and more legitimate places.

His latest works represents an innovative fusion of graffiti techniques and typography, fine art and sculpture and reflect both his background on the streets and his formal training at Chelsea College of Art. The artists success has lead to his status as a 3D graffiti pioneer, who spreads a lot of love with his artworks and skill.
