Streets: Zilda

French artist Zilda (interviewed) recently visited the northwestern port de St. Catherine in his native country for some relaxation. Of course, always one to mix business with pleasure, he pasted up some of his most recent works throughout seaside locale. You’d be hardpressed to think of a better placement by any other street artist when looking at this stunning new piece on a half-sunken ship. More after the jump…

Interview: Zilda

French artist Zilda’s classically influenced street work are inspired by old books and works of the master painters and sculptors of the past. With such a wealth of material to refer to, it was somewhat surprising to find out that his work is all originally hand-painted. We talked about his history, technique, and future,  among other things in our interview – all after the jump.
