HAZR

T he artist HAZR (b. 1988) is an observational image-maker specializing in small-scale candid street scenes and landscapes on paper. His 2019 Calendar is a collection of vignettes from the last year, drawn on site in and around Barcelona and the U.K.

His work reflects a culture of fast-paced production and consumption. In such a world, the goal is freshness: using paint markers, an efficient medium for recording quick-changing atmospheric conditions, he has developed an expressive shorthand of colour and line.

HAZR draws inspiration from many sources, including Cartier-Bresson’s street photography and Basquiat’s paintings. He currently lives and works in Barcelona. He can usually be found in the streets with a sketchbook on him.
