Footnotes

  • Asha Zero's work is not as it first appears to be. At first glance it is very easy to believe that the artist has created a collage or photo montage, however on closer inspection it becomes apparent that his work is formed from a technique of labourious handpainting.

    Zero's oeuvre recalls dilapidated street billboards, layered with truncated images and fragmented human features stripped from their original context, suggesting a fascination with fragmented identities- Zero is after all the artist's pseudonym- and serving as a comment on the visual saturation prevalent in public spaces.
