SAWE

 

Sawe (Barcelona, ​​1986) made his first appearance in the world of graffiti at the age of 14. After studying illustration at the art school, he worked for more than ten years as an illustrator, muralist and, more recently, as artistic and animation director. The contrast between the technique, the control and the discipline that he learned from the illustration and the irreverence, the flow and the disinhibition of graffiti is evident in all his works. In 2018, after his first solo show in New York, he decided to focus exclusively on his career as an artist: painting, murals, sculpture, installations, video-art.

Although figurative, his work rarely explains the reality that surrounds us. Sawe is not interested in representing the world as seen by our eyes. His works may seem rather like dreams, as if the artist were inclined to listen to his subconscious in the most free and unconditional way possible. In this way his works emerge, strongly tinged with humor, satire and irony. A subtle humor, capable of providing the viewer with a space for his own reading and reflection.
