Press Release:

Underdogs Gallery is pleased to present “Conto Interrompido”*, a solo exhibition of (confusing, complicated, contradictory, ambiguous) messages by Portuguese visual artist Mário Belém in Lisbon, Portugal.
We’re all supposed to speak more or less the same language yet sometimes we understand (bugger all) nothing of what the other person is saying. In his first solo exhibition at Underdogs, Mário Belém presents an ensemble of works that invite the viewer to reflect – in an amusing way, free of any (crap) pretentiousness – on one of the greatest paradoxes of the present reality: communication breakdowns in a world where information reigns supreme yet suffers from its own excess. Clearly playing with the confusion, the complications, the contradictions, and the ambiguity which we frequently come across in face of the visual and oral discourse – of both individuals and formal systems of communication – that surrounds us in our day-to-day, the artist showcases here an entirely new body of work composed of an array of visual narratives materialised in pieces of various dimensions that are somewhat halfway between painting and sculpture in wood, a medium which he has been favouring in his recent artistic practice.

*The title plays with the similarity between the Portuguese words “conto” (tale; story) and “coito” (coitus). “Interrompido”

Press release information:

“Underdogs Gallery is proud to present “As Happy As Sad Can Be”, a solo exhibition by Portuguese visual artist Wasted Rita in Lisbon, Portugal. Constituting yet another instalment of the life-based narrative that Wasted Rita has been sharing with us in recent years, “As Happy As Sad Can Be” is about facing and embracing sadness in a fun way; about playing with fake happiness while being fundamentally sad. According to the artist, the metaphor that best illustrates this idea is the image of a dog happily wallowing in a pool of mud – where the artist is the dog, the mud is her negativity and the act of wallowing is her art.

About the artist:
Portuguese visual artist and illustrator Wasted Rita (1988) has been amassing a huge following since starting her blog “Rita Bored” back in 2011. The self-styled “natural born agent provocateur” likes to observe, reflect, write and draw, pouring forth little gems of mordant wisdom, reflecting an unconventional upbringing in a Catholic school to the sound of Black Flag. Her angst-ridden poetic invectives on contemporary life, popular culture, and human behaviour have been finding their way into magazines, books, exhibitions and art commissions in a growing number of countries around the world.

Press Release:

Underdogs Gallery is proud to present “Printed Matters – Lisbon”, the first solo exhibition by renowned American visual artist Shepard Fairey in Lisbon, Portugal.
“Printed Matters” is a continuous series of exhibitions which focus on the importance of printed material in Shepard Fairey’s art.

Each exhibition highlights this significance by incorporating a variety of the artist’s printed material—including screen prints on paper, editions on wood, editions on metal, and fine art collage—with new works added for each venue, making each “Printed Matters” exhibition a unique experience.

Beginning in 2010, the “Printed Matters” platform was first presented in Los Angeles and for its next instalment will exhibit in Lisbon at Underdogs Gallery and will be on view from 21 to 31 of July, and 1 to 23 of September.
