biography

The artist ZIVO, who is from Belgian/Polish descent, loves working with different materials, which are employed to better pass on the artist’s dreams, emotions and obsessions. Among those materials ZIVO works with jute, elephant faeces he dries, sand from his garden, ashes from the stove or leather he takes of old sofas. It is because he saw dead elephants that he wanted to get to know the animals better and they have been a source of inspiration ever since. Through the representation of the elephant for example, ZIVO is best capable of telling the history of humanity.
