If you’ve found yourself chuckling at the curious ‘Nancy, your dog has fleas’ or ‘Ben, see you next Tuesday’ or maybe even ‘Any idea where we are yet?’- there’s no doubt you’d have stumbled across the glued-up, fluro pink ‘in-jokes’ and first street pieces of Real Hackney Dave and were maybe even left with the compulsion to write a few of your own.
Dave Buonaguidi AKA Real Hackney Dave finally sacked off his 35 year career in advertising to become a full-time artist. Well known for his screen printed, bold, pink and red typographic style, ‘WORD ON THE STREET’ will be Dave’s first solo show with BSMT. He has put together a large collection of unique, one-off pieces for the exhibition combining found, textured materials with his trademark bright pink and 3D lettering.
“I am fascinated by words and language and I always try to create an interesting and unique connection with people through my art. These three dimensional pieces are smaller and more manageable versions of the street art that I stick to buildings and walls out on the street and are inspired by a very personal message that I once saw on a motorway bridge that read, Come Back Kazza, I love You. This extremely personal and emotional message was only meant for one person, but was displayed in public and I find that really interesting.”
Expect to be entertained and delighted, as ever Real Hackney Dave does not disappoint!
WORD ON THE STREET opens with a private view on October 1st 6pm, with the show running until October 11th.
