Romanian artist, illustrator and muralist, Saddo studied Graphics in Cluj-Napoca, where he started his artistic career as a steet artist together with a group of friends called The Playground. His street art activity brought a fresh fun vibe to his way of perceiving art and the world, and opened doors to many different projects, commissions for advertising agencies, collaborations with galleries in Bucharest, Vienna, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, Glasgow, Salvador, etc.
Going through many different phases and influences, from horror movie posters, street art, comics, Saddo has recently developed his style into more elaborate shapes, with many different influences from old masters of 15th – 17th century, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Bosch, Brueghel, Walton Ford, naturalistic illustration, pop surrealism, religion, mythology.
His latest projects include his first solo-show, “Rise of The Bird People” at Objectos Misturados Gallery in Portugal, and the “Coffins” duo-show with Aitch at La Petite Mort Gallery, Ottawa, in 2014. And his second solo-show, “A Stranger in the Garden”, at BC Gallery in Berlin.
