Zoerism’s street art that represents the decadence of our century

Street artist Zoerism uses material goods such as the car to represent our time, but also hope for the future. Discover his murals here!

At the beginning of the twentieth century, the exponents of the nascent Futurism had found in the figure of the car, linked to the idea of speed, their main symbol. Today, almost a hundred years later, the car has evolved and changed and represents something totally different. Street artist Zoerism has made this object and other material goods his own, breaking them down and representing them on the immense walls of houses and buildings. 

Zoerism makes use of these elements to tell about our current situation and its decline, for this very reason the cars we see in its murals are neither of the latest generation nor very fast and fast, but close to being scrapped, forgotten. 

The reading of his works, however, often has a double face, one linked to a hyper-consumerist topicality, the other referring to the aspect of recycling. Being a society that consumes almost compulsively, but also a society in which the struggle for recycling and against waste is very active, his works can also hide a side of hope in a better future, in the construction of a bright and rushing tomorrow like the cars of the ’20s.
