Mr Cenz has been scribbling on surfaces since 1988 when he first discovered hip-hop culture and graffiti art. He soon became obsessed with this new and exciting art form and after a few brushes with the law he decided to find ways of developing his skills legally. Since his first commissioned mural at 11yrs old he has continued progressing and experimenting with his art through college and University. This has led to a career as a professional graffiti artist with several solo shows and high profile commissions internationally. 

 

For disCONNECT Mr Cenz’s work expands the ordered patterns and colours from the house’s black and white tiled floor and maroon walls in the main hallway into a fantastical blend of photorealism, illustration and graffiti lettering, reflective of his many street works which decorate the city of London. 
 
In regards to the mural, Inside Out, he says, "At a time where we have been disconnected from our friends and family my work is about the importance of connecting internally with your imagination, creativity, and aesthetic pleasures in order to maintain a positive mental health. This ability to be at one with yourself, think positively and have hope for the future is fundamental in our ability to cope and rebuild our lives."
