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.
