Xenz painted his first piece in 1987 at the age of 14. He signed his early work with the tag ‘sense’ a name that has evolved to xenz. He grew up in Hull, East Yorkshire. Following his studies in textile design in Edinburgh, Xenz moved to Bristol where he collaborated with some of the graffiti scenes most admired artists and became well respected for his landscape murals. Xenz has a unique approach to the art form and it is such that the word graffiti no longer sufficiently describes his work. It is an extraordinary cohesion between mind, memory and spray can that allows this influential artist to walk up to a wall or canvas and paint an epic landscape from his imagination using the spray can to capture fragments of memory and ever changing subject matter often drawn from the natural world. Xenz set up Studio in London in 2005 and held his first solo show in the same year. He has since been shown in exhibitions and art fairs in the Uk, Miami, New York, Basel, Paris and has also held successful solo shows in India Australia and Chicago. His prints and paintings are in huge demand and his work sits in private and corporate collections world wide. In 2013 he published a book entitled “The Art of Xenz” which documents two decades of his career as both a painter of walls and canvases.
The mixture of fine art with gritty urban scrawl is a powerful one that draws you in and leaves you suspended in his dreamlike world. lazarides Gallery
