Artist Looks To Incorporate Art To The Environment
As a form of art, street art or graffiti, as it’s popularly known, can always intersects with any urban landscape to convey the culture and the community of that specific place. To be honest, nobody seems to understand this as perfect as Ernest ‘Zach’ Zacharevic.
Trained as a painter and with a degree in fine arts, Zach has nurtured a worldwide reputation and gained a huge social media following as an incredible street artist who combines his signature street illustrations with real-life objects of any given place.
The Lithuanian artist, who is based in Penang, Malaysia, uses his unique technique to mash up his fine art with the medium that any given region presents to him. Whether he’s using a spray, stencil, oil paint or sculptures, Zach has traveled all over the world to communicate crafty and complex concepts that shows the interactions between his artworks and his chosen site.
“I derive my art inspiration from observing and studying the everyday life of any given place. This in turn gives me new experiences and challenges that I can only display on my street art because it’s the best way to translate the landscape, the architecture and the people of that particular place into my artwork.” Zach says.
Zach’s cool work perfectly justifies his self-definition that he’s “an artist who paints the streets and not a street artist.” He’s somehow right because his mesmerizing street art shows that he’s not just your average street artist.
