Race Flag is a conversation between visual artist Felipe Pantone and photographer Omar Quinones through
images. A single emoji occupies the cover, the use of this title is a statement of intent: They have a conversation
not with words, but images, making use of the multiple meanings and readings they may contain.
The artists establish a game in which Felipe Pantone poses a question in the form of an image, comprised of
the different elements of his work, consisting mainly of abstract forms. Omar Quinones then answers with
a photograph, figurative elements based on what inspires him from the received image, creating a new dimension
focusing on forms, meanings and feelings.
With this format, they establish a kind of abstraction in reverse, in which both artists bring new meanings
throughout the layout of the images. Felipe expresses himself with vectors, digital files and defined shapes,
enhancing the abstraction; while Omar does so with images captured on photographic film, with grain and
imperfections, coaxing the reader to enter a more physical dimension.

Zedz Blackbook unveiled is Zedz first personal book. The book demonstrates a cut through of 25 years of graffiti making and style development. The format resembles an artists sketchbook and is designed in such a way to respire authenticity, the book does not contain any text and focusses on graffiti sketches and style research paving the way for (geometrical) abstract works. The format of the book sprouts directly from the idea that the first and most treasured personal book of a graffiti writer is most likely to be his blackbook in which designing and collecting photo’s of the work has the priority. It is the artist book in it’s most pure state. The blackbook presents all drawings and researches in a chronological order, it highlights and demonstrates periods of excelleration and personal development. At the same time it shows clearly the commitment to graffiti and tells a story without words. Limited edition of 750 signed and numbered copies.
