French street artist Zevs is bringing his signature style indoors with an exhibition playing on the dominance of oil. The 38-year-old former graffiti artist has taken his trademark "liquidation" technique – where colors drip from the logos of big corporations – from walls to canvas. Created in bold acrylic colors, "The Big Oil Splash" is not an artist's critique of the power of giant oil corporations and the environmental damage caused by oil spills, but a playful look at its power. The series of paintings are variations on British artist David Hockney's 1967 pop art painting "A Bigger Splash," which depicts the splash in a swimming pool beside a modern house, on a sunny California day.Since 2005, Zevs has sprung upon corporation logos in public spaces and dripped their colours down the wall below them.
