Alex “Zú” Arzú
Alex “Zú” Arzú was born in 1984 in Augsburg, Germany. He studied architecture at the University of Houston and there after was an architect for 4yrs. Alexander, the son of two Afro-Honduran immigrants, always knew that he wanted to be an artist from a very young age. His source of encouragement were his parents and his first grade teacher, Mrs. Neff, who first recognized that he was gifted with a natural talent. Alexander has been perfecting his craft his entire life, receiving numerous awards in Jr. High and High School. For a year, he was the Lead Designer and Production Artist for Eyeful Art Custom Murals and Designs in Houston, TX until he decided to leave the company and start his own. His murals and tattoo art has made him a local favorite, and he continues to receive immense recognition for his artwork. Five years ago he had no idea that he would become successful artist—he thought he was going to be an architect.
