Zabou is an exciting street art talent who, since bursting onto the scene in 2012 has been gaining a growing reputation for her sharp stencil based art. Originally from France but based in London, her work can be found all over the East End, one of the world’s top places to see high quality street art. Her work is striking ; her images are a mixture of stencil and freehand technique, combining both sharp lines, colourful shades, dripping and splashes of paint. She plays on stereotypes and pokes fun at conformity, from spray painting nuns to satirical takes on the surveillance state. It has steadily been gaining her a reputation with invites to take part in shows and to paint coming from all around Europe. It’s a reputation which has also led to her gaining the attention of thought leading speech organisation TED where she gave her views on the benefits of street art in aiding community Regeneration.
