HISTORY
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 painters like Rousseau, Walton Ford, Matisse, Iranian miniatures or Asian carpets, with his street art formation, visible in his love of contemporary illustration, decorative arts, hip hop, urban culture.

ROMANIAN DESIGN WEEK APPEARANCES

2018 // Mural for Jidar Mural Festival - Rabat, Morocco
Mural made during the third edition of Jidar Festival in Rabat, Morocco.

2018 // Record Cover for Mark Stoermer - Filthy Apes and Lions
Illustration for the cover of Mark Stoermer's album, "Filthy Apes and Lions. His references were previous illustrations of the author and the work of Henri Rousseau.
Technique: Acrylics on Paper

2018 // Pattern for the "Sumatra" shirt for Old Captain Co.
Seamless pattern design made for Old Captain Co., a Swiss company producing super cool shirts.
The shirt is 100% cotton, and it is produced in a limited edition of 120 pieces.

2018 // Pocket Squares for R. Culturi
Series of illustrations made for a small company that produces scarves, neckties, pocket squares, printed with illustrations created by different artists and illustrators. The so called pocket square, being a pretty masculine accessory, I thought of illustrating female characters doing activities that in some cultures are seen as mostly masculine.
Technique: Acrylics on paper, printed on silk twill fabric

2018 // Murals for The Birdyard, Vienna
Murals created for The Birdyard, a bar and eatery opened in Vienna in 2017.
The project is a partnership between my friends from Atelier Olschinsky, a design studio and art / illustration gallery in Vienna, and Mama Liu & Sons, a family Chines restaurant. The brief was "plants and big ass birds that make you feel small".

2018 // Illustration for Studio Illustration, an experiment during Vienna Design Week 2017
Illustration made during Studio Illustration, a live illustration experiment for Vienna Design Week, curated by Erwin K. Bauer from Vienna, and Ovidiu Hrin from Romania.
The experiment consisted of: a printed sentence missing a word, a box full of stickers with words, out of which visitors would choose a random word, the most chosen word would fill in the blank in the sentence, and the illustrator would illustrate the new sentence. I got "Make future great again", so I chose to illustrate the rapper Future.

2018 // PRINT DESIGN FOR BUMBAG
Print design for a bumbag made in collaboration with the Romanian brand BumbagR
bumbagr.com

2018 // VINYL AND CD COVER FOR COMA - ORIZONT
Illustration for the cover of the album Orizont, by Coma. Starting from the band's logo, that mixes a feather and a baseball bat, I wanted to create the feeling of a bandana printed with contrasting elements, soft ones like flowers, birds and butterflies, with violent ones like burning cars, riots and knives.

2017 // Saddo for Regina Maria Central Laboratory
But 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 all over the world.
It does not take too complicated reasoning to make a connection between the microscopic world of cells and design. It may not need any reasoning at all - but only intuition. Indeed, the similarity between what we see through a microscope and a work of art - whether abstract, apparently - is striking.
This intuition has generated the idea of involving an artist for interior decoration of Laboratories Regina Maria. Thus, the walls of the laboratory became "canvas" on which is exposed the unofficial art, invisible to the naked eye, but which we all carry within us.

2016 // COLLECTION OF PATTERN DESIGNS
A collection of hand painted patterns designed by Saddo, some of them commissioned by clients like a Mexican restaurant in London, or a flower shop in Bogota, all of them presented in the RDW 2016 Exhibition as printed wrapping papers or wallpaper samples.
