ArTicks Gallery Presents: Rachid Skezoid Ouaziz Solo Show (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

Rachid SKEZOID Ouaziz Solo Show

9 – 25 November, 2011
8:00pm – 11:00pm
Vernissage 11th November from 8pm till 11pm

Rachid Ouaziz, SKEZOID is originally North African Berber ascent and grew up in a polder town in the north of Holland. He started doing graffiti as a ‘late schooler’ in ’87, focusing mainly on characters, influenced by television cartoons and comics. His art is best to described as ‘character catharsis’ – awkward beauties with a focus on outlines, accompanied by colors depending on medium and surfaces. His characters outlines are like the ones standing next to graffiti letters, weighting heavily on the mug side, allowing the mugs heavier than the piece. During this 2 weeks solo exhibition opening on 11th November 2011 in the ArTicks Gallery in Amsterdam, Rachid will show his latest work. See previous works on
