Zor Zore Zor Exhibition Berliner Vorwahl Keep Berlin Weird Mario Gonzalez Jr Zore64

On August 28th, 2015 Keep Berlin Weird presented the two chicagoeans Zor Zor Zor and Mario Gonzalez, Jr., a.k.a. ZORE or Zore64, for a joint exhibition at the Berliner Vorwahl Loft in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Both are working as street artists as well as studio artists in the USA and it is their love to Berlin that regularly brings them back to our beautiful city we all love so much.

At the artist reception both artists were quite busy answering plenty of questions from the people and were happy to explain ideas and markant features about their art to the interested audience. Especially ZorZorZor’s deep drawings of women which also have become kind of her trademark steered a lot of interest with guests.

One of the visitors of the exhibition was Berlins oldest Hipster, seventy year old Anton Krabbenhöft who was recently featured in style magazines all over the world for his unique way of dressing, including Cosmopolitan and the US Huffington Post. In a chat with Mario, the Kreuzberg native revealed that he is a big fan of street art and that he enjoys being surrounded by the ubiquoius beautiful art that the streets of Berlin offer. He added, it’s like living in a big gallery which is also permanently changing and evolving.

Working tirelessly as a street artist and studio artist, ZORZORZOR is making her rounds across the globe. She began her work and personal study in Paris, adapted it to her hometown streets of Chicago, and since then has quickly grown to bringing it to every city she encounters on her journey. Working with materials she finds along the way, ZORZORZOR loves to compose shapes and lines, creating mask like faces and figures. Without any formal training, her work is intuitive, often expressing hidden emotions she holds within herself. She frequently uses words and phrases to further draw the viewer into her works.

ZORE and ZORZORZOR has previously shown work at the Chicago Cultural Center and the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago, and is working on an anticipated solo exhibition at Elephant Room Gallery in Chicago this May. Last year they also both exhibited at the one-day Lost and Found Exhibition at QL-Gallery Berlin together with Keep Berlin Weird artists Mein Lieber Prost and Rolly.

Artists ZORE as Mario Gonzalez Jr. (a.k.a Zore64) and ZORZORZOR have been working closely for 2 years time, traveling, painting and showing side by side. Coming from different backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets, their work uniquely compliments the others. Mario’s abstract graffiti letter forms and wildstyles are both bold and subtle, while ZORZOR’s figures are delicately powerful. Together they love to play with layers, sometimes going from piece to piece and adding their marks on each others works. In the end, one artist may dominate the piece, however the influence of both is reflected, whether faintly or distinctly.

After working so closely for such amount of time, the two artists will spend a month apart, creating separate individual works in separate locations. Here in Berlin they will meet again, joining their work together, and possibly transforming it completely. Jointly, they will create site specific paintings, collaboratively on location, each bringing what they gained with their time away.
