Urban Art At Its Best – Dotmasters
The art of Dotmasters is too complex to be labeled just as urban art. Being active in different fields (i.e. collaboration with grass roots activists, luxury brands, Glastonbury festival, weirdoes, developers and drop outs), Dotmasters is known as driving force behind the Nuart festival in Norway. We have recently written about its exhibition at Reed Projects Gallery in Stavanger, Norway, called Cutting Comments that took place in late spring 2015. You can also check out the interview with Dotmasters we conducted couple of months ago.
Dotmasters Has Always Been Addressing Social and Political Issues
The artist addresses both social and political issues in his art. For example, consumerism appears as a motif in many of Dotmasters’ artworks. However, the artist’s practice itself is characterized by a strong political statement.

Dotmasters Print Release
The Indigo gets up…Before & After print series is consisted of the works from the Rude Kids series. The characters in this edition are friends and family, all under 12, and with “nice and dissent” look and behavior. However, as kids are getting older, they are starting to question their surroundings, and the prints from the series captures these kids while they’re still just “rude kids”. The edition includes three color ways of “Indigo”, with two versions: a “Before” she (the character) tags the Mona Lisa and an “After”. Therefore, it’s up to you to decide what you prefer – before or after. The prices of the prints range from £150 to £190.
