Green chalk monsters and flying pigs – David Zinn, first artist out for No Limit Street Art Borås 2015

February 25, 2015By No Limit BoråsUncategorized

David Zinn is a self-taught artist living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. His small-scale fanciful creatures, often including a stalk-eyed green monster and a flying pig, are generally improvised on the street using chalk, charcoal and found objects.

Davids etherial drawings generally wash away in the rain, but photographs of them have endured on Street Art Utopia, The Guardian, Central China TV, the Instagram Blog, Colossal, La Republica, Upworthy and many other places.

– David is one of the most appreciated artists in the world in this genre of street art. His beautiful charcoal creatures usually pops up at the most unexpected spots, giving joy to the spectators, old and young. Sometimes David paints more permanent pieces to enlighten the city for a longer period. Personally I really love Davids work and the creative pieces always gives me a broad smile, says curator Shai Dahan.

– No Limit 2015 got more of alternative street art. We do hope to see a lot of Davids pieces around town during the festival. Like Isaac Cordal last year David will find suitable spots for his peculiar charcoal drawings. We really got a good mix of styles this year and I guess that David will be a personal favorite to many visitors of No Limit, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.

No Limit is an outdoor art event inviting artists from around the world to participate in turning public spaces into an outdoor exhibition. The event is about all kinds of street art, from large scale murals to street art sculptures and installations. No Limit first saw the world in September 2014. 2015 we´re doing it again. A warm welcome to Borås, Sweden 3-6th of September 2015.

Artists line up will be revealed continuously from now on – stay tuned for further artists and more information.
