Saddo is Romanian artist, illustrator and muralist, he lived all over Romania, a year and a half in Berlin, and now back in Bucharest. Always attracted towards a fantastic, bizarre imagery, since childhood, when he used to devour tones of horror and scifi movies and books. We love his surrealistic drawing style and we hope you will take inspiration from this gallery.
He studied the basics of graphics at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, but his first important step to what he is today as an artist, was discovering street art, and founding one of the first street art collectives in Romania, The Playground. His artistic work ranges from dreamy, colorful, pop-surrealistic paintings, to dark, monochromatic, powerful drawings. He doesn’t have a very rational approach in his artistic process, he feels his works are collections of suggestions, influences from Renaissance, Flemish Masters, lowbrow art, street art, design, and personal moods – all brought together in a fantastic scene, or an intricate monstrous Arcimboldian portrait, or even abstract compositions. His work was showed in many group exhibitions in Bucharest, Timisoara, Berlin, Vienna, Aalborg, Copenhagen, San Jose, New York, Los Angeles, Ottawa, Montreal, Stockholm, Dresden, Muenster, Holon, Glasgow, Salvador, etc.
