Dd REGALO ARTIST BIO
“I like it messy, raw and loose around the edges.” – Dd
Working primarily in painting and mixed media, Dd’s art is known for its expressive marks, poetic scrawling and loose composition. Inspired by the human experience, both physical and abstract, his paintings are like short stories about his subjects leaving traces of both physical and emotional experience.
Dd Regalo has lived and worked internationally including Australia, China, USA, UK and his native country Canada. Mostly recently in April, his work was sold at Christie’s London for THE AUCTION charity fundraiser with Terrence Higgins Trust raising funds for sexual health in the UK.
LOST AND FOUND [Find Yourself and Get Lost]
This is a story about finding meaning in the everyday. It’s a story about all of us…everyone…and at the same time the story is unique to each person. It’s about finding the elements that bring meaning along the way and in doing so focusing your purpose. All of the works in this show are originals and were made from reclaimed objects and materials, some found on the streets, continuing their journey as it crosses with others.
Experience this journey through art with Dd Regalo (@ddregalo) this September at Quaker Street Cafe and don’t miss the PREVIEW NIGHT // Thursday 07 September // 7-10pm @ Quaker Street Café in Shoreditch with live music by Frederico Marton.
