Dzia (b. Belgium), is a Belgian artist and something of an enigma in the Antwerp area. A fine artist in every sense, the creations of Dzia range from paintings, through sculpture to installation and street works and among other things he is also creator of copyzine KRANK.
In his hometown of Antwerp, street artist Dzia is something of enigma – his animalistic murals pop up all over the city’s walls, breathing life into abandoned urban areas, as well as appearing in other cities all across Europe.
“From a young age art has always been a great interest to me. My uncle was an artist and my whole family have always been very creative. This passion carried me through my younger years until I eventually went on to study a masters in fine art at the Royal Academy in Antwerp.
After I graduated I really wanted place my artwork onto walls.
I focused on creating a truly unique graphic style, using abstract and geometric lines to implement into animalistic forms. I’ve been painting on walls for around two and half years now.
New ideas come very easily to me, so my work is very spontaneous – I paint quickly and in-situ to make sure the original idea stays true to its form.”
