Outer Worldly Artwork of Saddo

Trained at the University of Art and Design in Cluj Napoca, Romania, and currently living in Berlin, Saddo (real name Raul Oprea) has an immense collection of art to his name. He specializes in surreal, bright and intricate characters and scenes, using a range of mediums including watercolour, acrylic paint, pencils and marker pens. As for materials, Saddo prefers plain paper, but has been known to work with wood, canvas and street surfaces.

Saddo doesn’t have a precise way of working, instead working with a general idea in his head, which he puts to paper before building up the composition in a way he describes as ‘improvisation’. Most of the ideas behind his work come straight from the recesses of his mind, with some help from his illustrator girlfriend, Heliana.

Saddo is currently working on a submission for digital media and modern art collective DepthCORE, which he has recently joined. He is also working towards more canvas and wood-based paintings, as well as some screenprints in collaboration with Supalife Kiosk, Berlin, as well as looking for some gallery space to showcase his work and ‘trash the walls‘.
