London: Saber – The Ugly American

Saber - the Ugly American

After Newcastle, LA based graffiti artist Saber launched the second installment of his first European solo show “The Ugly American” at The Outsiders London.

Suffering from epilepsy and being denied healthcare, the politically engaged artist decided to voice issues  and battles for universal care by attacking and transforming iconic images of US and Union Jack flags. Using found packing crates, the flags have been scratched and look raw and angry.

On the other hand Saber’s abstract paintings, made with layered collages and painted paper, juxtapose harmoniously a delicate texture with his strong and powerful sharp signature lines.
