DontGiveADamns is an eclectic selection of 18 international artists whose creative practice carries the “f**k it!” attitude at some level. Whether approaching the rendering of their visuals loosely, being purposely careless or sloppy about the technical aspect of their work, or resolutely trying to not fit in any existing genres, DontGiveADamns are embodying the textbook “creative free spirit” to the fullest.
DontGiveADamns will be presenting new original works by Rhys Lee, Joji Nakamura, Lung, Picardo Mario, Heidi Ukkon, Erkut Terlikaiz, David Noro, Jordy van den Nieuwendijk, Derek Aylward, Felix Treadwell, Charles Shedden aka Owvbics, Wayne Horse, Marti Sawe, Pelucas Pilas Bubbles, Nabeeha Mohamed, Hunter Potter, Antwan Horfee, Evgeen Čopi Gorišek, and Jordy Kerwick.
The artist Marti SAWE was born in Barcelona in 1986. He began to write graffiti at the age of 14, a practice he continues to this day and that was to radically transform his perception of the city. He studied illustration at the La Massana art school. Following his studies, graffiti provided him with the means to combine his work as an illustrator with travel and exhibitions throughout the world. The contrast between the technique, control and discipline he learnt from illustration and the irreverence, flow and disinhibition of graffiti is clear in all his work. His letters and drawings break from the norm and are never formulaic. A tireless explorer, SAWE taught himself animation and founded the MANSON audiovisual studio in 2014, together with three other artists. His career includes four productive years immersed in the animation world, working with leading brands and artists to produce adverts and video clips and as an art director… In 2018, following his first solo exhibition in New York, he decided to focus exclusively on his career as an artist: painting, murals, sculpture, installations, video-art…
