Born in 1997, the Italian artist Merco Burresi, known as Zed1, originates from Florence where he was first introduced to graffiti and later got a bachelor’s degree in Geometry. In his works, marionettes and other characters appear in a fictitious space that is full of skewed surrealism but bears resemblance to his surrounding environment. Having caught international attention, he has participated in several exhibitions and festivals all around the world.
