Zevs HK Arrest Update

Our friends over at Wooster Collective clued us in to a South China Morning Post video news report (below) concerning the arrest of French artist Zevs in Hong Kong last week, after he and two others decorated the exterior of an Armani store with a signature liquidated Chanel logo. Upon further investigation, we report that SCMP now confirms Zevs’ has pleaded guilty and is out on $HK500 bail. More critical is news that his passport is being held until the case is called to court next month, possibly causing the cancellation of a project planned for New York. Zevs’ Liquidated Logos exhibit at Hong Kong based Art Statements Gallery is still running smoothly and continues through Sept 30.
