In this clip we visit the studio of artist Zalez:

Price range information: Prints can be found for most works at $50. Originals can reach as high as $10,000.

What I appreciate most about Zalez is his references to art movements of the past. He has done his own interpretations of Warhol’s Soup cans, Renaissance works, and even contemporary artists such as Jeff Koons. This is the first image in the gallery.
