Zen Xander, is an anonymous street artist known for his satirical approach to fine art. Xander’s work blurs the lines between street art and fine art, using humour and irony to critique contemporary society. As he transitions from the streets to the gallery, Xander maintains his playful and provocative edge, exploring themes of modern absurdities and societal contradictions. His pieces often feature animals in incongruous situations, highlighting the surreal nature of modern life.

For instance, in “VR Vegan,” a lion dons a virtual reality headset while eating a bowl of salad, poking fun at the disconnect between reality and virtual experiences, as well as the sometimes-contradictory nature of dietary choices. Another notable work, “ALWAYS A CHEETAH” depicts a cheetah on a scooter, humorously addressing themes of laziness and the avoidance of natural abilities. Xander’s art is not just visually engaging but also thought-provoking, encouraging viewers to question the world around them. His work, such as the bear delicately eating sushi with chopsticks or the dog meditating with a VR headset, challenges perceptions and invites a deeper contemplation of the everyday absurdities in life.
