Streetartist Zevs in China verhaftet, Video-Interview

(Youtube Direktzevs, via Wooster)

Letzte Woche wurde NC-Favorite Zevs in China verhaftet, nachdem er einen Armani-Store aufgehübscht hatte. Oben ein Video inklusive Interview dazu, Snip von Youtube:

In the aftermath of street artist Zevs' "liquidation" of Giorgio Armani's store in Central this week, the Frenchman has had to deal with his arrest and subsequent court case in which he pleaded guilty to one count of criminal damage.

Representatives of Giorgio Armani demanded nearly HK$6.7 million in damages. They say because they could not remove the paint from the store's facade because of its sandstone nature. Zevs said he deliberately used a water-based paint that ought to have been easily removable. But professional cleaners hired by Armani claim otherwise.

The case has been adjourned till 14th August pending both sides' assessment of the damage. Without prior knowledge to his planned stunt, the Post interviewed Zevs days before the incident and introduced us to some of his previous art work.
