ZEK ONE: Artist & Graff head
Zek is one of the few graffiti artists active in Montreal today that can say he was a founding member of the scene. Painting the foundations of the city since 1993, his dedication, talent and love for the craft have earned him the respect of his peers. It is not surprising that he is cited as an influence by so many artists who have come up after him. He is a master of his medium, known for his razor-sharp line-work, crisp calligraphy and vivid colour combinations. As an ambassador of Montreal’s lettering style, he has traveled to collaborate with graffiti artists from all over the world, and is a member of international crews, such as the infamous 156. An integral part of the the ASHOP team, he is a prolific artist, creating impressive work seen in both his solo work and large mural collaborations.
