Born in New Jersey, Zeus moved to Washington Heights in 2010. He is a junior at the Urban Assembly of Media Arts in Manhattan. He is half Haitian, part Caucasian, and part African American. Zeus joined Youth Insights Artists because he wanted meet creative, like-minded people and to further his interest in contemporary American art. To Zeus, art is the physical manifestation of creativity. It is anything that is made creatively and that other people can see, hear, or experience. His favorite artist is Banksy, because he likes the wit, irony, and overall cleverness of his work. Zeus likes photography because he believes that even the most mundane and small things in life are beautiful. To Zeus, photography is the only medium that allows him to express that belief “without bashing my own philosophical views over someone’s head”. He is also interested in political science.
