Saber: The Ugly American

The Outsiders Newcastle

Friday 6th of September 2013 to Saturday 5th of October 2013

Featuring Saber

Legendary graffiti artist Saber's debut exhibition at The Outsiders Newcastle will consist entirely of work created in the gallery itself. The artist will be literally living and breathing in the space for eight weeks ahead of the exhibition, so stay tuned to our social media channels for regular pictorial snapshots and updates of his progress throughout the summer.

The exhibition's title, The Ugly American, is taken from the multi-million-copy best selling book and movie: the phrase itself came to be a synonym for all that is wrong with American foreign policy, something very close to Saber's heart and practices. While it may not be obvious when glancing at his works, this theme is woven into the very fabric of every piece he's creating.
