Zombi (also known as ZombieDan) comes from Stockwell and his first love for graffiti art began in the 1990s. Throughout this period, whilst growing up, he became inspired by the surrounding street art scene in London. Witnessing the golden era of urban art in one of the global centres of the movement, Zombi was able to feed off this energy, learning from the best and developing his own voice along the way. After having left school with a double distinction in Art, he moved to the Midlands and set about making waves.

Street Art Beginnings
By 2016 he had turned professional and was free to put everything into his art. He put on a sell out show at the 2016 Art Basel exhibition in Miami, and this was unprecedented at his young age. Considerable media attention saw ZombieDan soon become one of the most talked about and exciting names in the stencil art world, and he was soon invited to huge events such as Comic Con and Upfest, even working with global brands such as Mini. From being an anonymous cult artist, to now becoming a world beating prospect in the art world, he has the time and freedom to spend months in his East London studio perfecting each stencil down to the finest detail.
Urban Stencil Art
He works often with the layering of stencils and the layering of spray paint to create striking visual effects. His body of work touches on many of the common themes and motifs in graffiti art, often referencing widely from popular culture. On top of that, his more recent work has delved into a more personal form of expression, with some of his collections raising awareness of mental health related issues. What you will always get with his artwork, no matter what the topic, is a striking level of precision and detail, as well as a clear eye for the most impactful of colour combinations. The images which arise out of his stencil art are always intriguing thanks to their layered quality. We are pleased to have a number of Zombi limited edition signed prints here at the Enid Hutt Gallery.
