There is each of us in the Flexo!
David Zeller, alias ZED, comes from Alsace and is a natural born sculptor. Despite showing obvious artistic inclinations and a real passion for working with materials ever since he was a child, he did not imagine right away that he would take this path. Indeed, it was only in 2007, encouraged by his then boss, that ZED decided to leave the field of restoration permanently in order to embrace that of artistic creation. His first exhibitions were a great success with the public and the commissions followed one another, which reassured the young artist in his new professional path. He started out as a woodcarver and designed his most popular work by sheer chance, based on fallen branches found in a dumpster that he then reworked to gradually produce his famous character named Flexo.
Formed for the first time in 2010, the little man Flexo was cut out of an acrylic plate and thermoformed by hand. He quickly found his place in the windows of shops and galleries around the world, thanks to his wide range of colours and his multiple postures and moods that can be described as universal. Faced with the enthusiasm he aroused, the sculptor decided to make monumental reproductions of them, in particular to meet the orders of companies and cities. Through this creation, which aims to democratize art so that it can be accessible to everyone, this great enthusiast of human behaviour likes to reflect the full diversity of emotions in the shaping of his characters. In this way, they can speak to everyone, regardless of language and culture.
