Romanian born contemporary artist Saddo, currently based in Bucharest, juggles between paintings on canvas for galleries, large scale murals and commission illustrations for different projects and brands.
In his personal and commissioned works he manages to mix his taste for artists like Rousseau, Matisse or Grayson Perry, with his fascination for Iranian miniatures, Asian carpets, and his love of contemporary illustration, decorative arts, hip hop and urban culture. And just like a
hip-hop DJ, he samples different elements, surreal imagery, portraits of rappers, luxury cars, brand logos, into his own intricate iconography.
He’s been part of numerous group shows all over the world ( in Copenhagen, New York, Berlin, Montreal, Ottawa, Salvador, Bangkok, Vienna, Mexico City, Oakland, Portland), he’s had solo shows at BC Gallery in Berlin and Mobius Gallery in Bucharest, and has painted murals in Montreal, Bangkok, Las Vegas, Seattle, Bucharest, Paris, Rabat.
He’s currently represented by Mobius Gallery in Bucharest, and Dutch Uncle worldwide.
