Classical Street Art by Zilda (15 pieces)

Roses in Paris

French street artist Zilda creates work that's refined and classic. My appreciation for it grows every second I look at his amazing collection. Using both paint and pasting techniques, we get to reminisce about the past with classical works of art from the Renaissance, along with scenes from classic Roman cinema of the '50s & '60s.

"it is essential to know the social and architectural stratification of a city, to get familiar with its streets, its quarters, and to view that urban setting as a constraint that stimulates the staging of my ideas, says Zilda. 'Spotting the city' amounts to approaching it like an open-air museum where each wall constitutes a hypothetic painting, a backdrop already developing its own aesthetics and organization of colors and materials."
