DALeast “Redok” @ The Outsiders, Newcastle
An artist to watch for sure over the coming years... DALeast has been making some waves in both the mural and painting world over the past few years. DALeast's solo exhibition REDOK – a Tibetan phrase meaning "hope and fear" – features animal paintings in traditional portrait formats, taking inspiration from commissioned works of the early modern era. The portraits are painted in the artist's distinctive, inspiring style. They include the tea-stained backgrounds, which he lovingly builds over many months, that feature on many of his bravura gallery pieces.
