From 15 March – 14 April, visit Saatchi to see an exhibition of new works by the artist, Sr. X in the Prints & Originals Gallery.
These works are striking and unforgettable, created both in the streets and in the studio. He employs retro imagery, pop culture icons, surrealist twists and dada mischief to produce his works of satirical brilliance. Sr. X subverts the constant advertising that we are exposed to and the images of aspirational perfection that are directed at us all.
These works on display were created in the last six month and reveal Sr. X’s staggering imagination. He uses creativity as a weapon against conformism and the sugary sweet diet of contemporary consumerism. Familiar elements remain such as pulp magazine portraits, cartoon figures and advertising slogans.
