As the world knows, we are pushing the technological envelope and quickly moving into the metaverse. This screams opportunity, as he sees the world – and its virtual counterpart, as his canvas. As an artist who thrives from creating works for the masses to enjoy, it is a new ‘spot’ for him. Imagine the possibilities and dreams of having your graffiti pieces on every wall of this clean, green, fine city, and all over the world.
Well, stop imagining. Take your phones out, open an app and scan your surroundings! Art knows no boundaries. Take a glimpse of what the future holds.
What started off as a pursuit of delving into the hip-hop elements in his teens, got Ziz settled into doing graffiti back in 2007. Through exploring different styles and armed with a desire to know more/a desire for knowledge, Ziz Wonder, also known as Raziz, was born; it was created while observing a robotic sameness in life here as people go through emotionless daily routines. A lot of his ideas and inspirations subconsciously comes from his childhood days, during the 90s and early 2000s, when technology really took off. Using lines, shapes and visual experiences, his art aims to create a sense of wonder and inspire curiosity in the viewer.
