Artist of the moment…….Ernest Zacharevic

 

 

Ernest Zacharevic is a wonderful street artist born in Lithuania.

Zacharevic works with the figure in a very humorous manner. In some works he makes use of tree and plant branches to use for people’s hair.

The style of the artist is very interesting  that takes into account not only the surface, but the texture. His heads with hair remind me of Chia pets!

In this clip we view the artist at work at a street art fair in 2014. Zacharevic makes great use of the grey color of the walls in his portraits:

In this clip we view a show titled “Art is Rubbish” by Ernest Zacharevic:

The artist is now based out of Malaysia.
