Belles & Whistles

an exhibition of new work by Duda

May 27 - June 10, 2016

Belles _ Whistles

After a whirlwind year of successful shows in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Stockholm and London, Irish-Italian artist, David Uda (Duda), has returned to home soil to launch his most recent body of work Belles & Whistles at Sol Art Gallery on Dawson Street.

With a background in fashion and a love for the aesthetics of shape and form, Duda’s pieces are colourful and naturally rendered. Many of Duda’s paintings can be characterized by a genuine appreciation for beauty and he is known for exploring a wide variety of techniques in his work - ranging from original stencils to glasswork. Featured on the walls of private homes and in well known bars and restaurants here and abroad, and with two large commissions on New York’s Wall Street - a piece by Duda breathes new life to any kind of space, whether it be private, public or site-specific. Duda continues to catch the eye of collectors both in Ireland and abroad with his unique style of contemporary pop art.

Belles & Whistles will be officially opened on Friday 27th May by music legend Kevin Godley, formerly of platinum-selling band 10cc.

The launch event will be sponsored by Peroni with music by DJ Mark Alton.

The exhibition will run until June 10th, 2016.
