Mr.Zero

Hungarian graffiti artist Mr. Zro has been creating art since the day he could hold a crayon. His style is hard to describe but has some of the most awesome 3d and highlights we’ve ever encountered. Besides his pieces he also makes ‘human-animal’ portraits which are guaranteed to make you look twice. We approached the good man to ask him a couple of questions!

What got you into streetart, and what makes you keep on doing it?

I like to draw since the first time and I tried it on walls, I don’t know why. It was fun, I want to paint my stuff everywhere. It’s something like the voices in a serial-killer’s head.

You’ve done graphic design from 2001-2005, how does this influence your artwork?

I studied it for 4 years but I’m doing it from my childhood and I’m working as a graphic designer nowadays too.

Who and what inspires you?

Everything I see, everything I hear. For example music is a great inspiration for me.

Can you tell us more about your humananimals and why you make them?

I try to show the character of the human beings and situations through animal stereotypes. The people may think they are better and smarter than animals but I think no, we are the poison of the earth cause we kill them for sport and destroy their habitats and we call it civilization……

Do you prefer to do legal or illegal stuff?

Mainly I paint legal or half-legal stuffs nowadays but when I’ve found a great spot I’m not thinking too much to paint there or not.

Is there any piece you are particularly proud of?

Not really. I have some favorites but I’m not really a proud person. I’m just doing my shit as anyone else.
