Romanian born contemporary artist Saddo, currently based in Bucharest, has a labile way with style, techniques and subjects. He juggles between paintings on canvas for galleries, large scale murals and commission illustrations for different projects and brands.
His work mixes his taste for artists like Rousseau, Matisse or Grayson Perry, Iranian miniatures, Asian carpets, with his street art formation, and his love of contemporary illustration, decorative arts, hip hop and urban culture. And just like a hip-hop DJ, he samples and mixes different elements, surreal imagery, portraits of rappers, cars, logos, geometric elements, plants, animals, into his own intricate iconography.
He’s been part of numerous group shows all over the world, he’s had solo shows, at BC Gallery, Berlin and Mobius Gallery, Bucharest, and has painted murals in Montreal, Bangkok, Las Vegas, Seattle, Bucharest, Paris, Rabat. He’s currently represented by Mobius Gallery in Bucharest.
