In his digital paintings, DotPigeon (born 1987) renders a balaclava-clad burglar, or “balaclava/riot guy,” in opulent mansions hung with blue-chip works by famous artists such as Damien Hirst, Kaws, Yoshitomo Nara, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
The cinematic scenes are both darkly funny and deeply unsettling and his work powerfully explores the inner conflict between what we show to others versus what we really feel.
DotPigeon started making art in 2017 while he was working as an advertising executive.
He has since found success in both galleries and digital sphere, with physical group and solo shows in Italy, Germany and USA and several drops on NiftyGateway. He participated at Art Basel and his work has been auctioned by Christie’s.
