Romanian illustrator and muralist Saddo started his artistic career as founder of one of the first Romanian street art collectives.
'The Playground' was born in a time when a freshly graduated artist didn't have any other possibilities than to be a graphic designer or a teacher.
His street art activity brought a fresh and fun vibe to the whole way of perceiving art and the world, and opened a door to many different projects, commissions for advertising agencies, collaborations with galleries in Bucharest, Vienna, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, Glasgow, Salvador, and other locations on our globe.
Going through many different phases and influences, from horror movie posters, street art and comics, Saddo has recently developed his style into more elaborate shapes with many different influences from old masters of the 15th - 17th century. Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Bosch, Brueghel, Walton Ford and styles such as naturalistic illustration, pop surrealism, religion and mythology are now being poured into a one of a kind style.
