Artist Info

Das B is a French/Brazilian artist, he initially started experimenting with street art, painting graffiti in Midtown/Upper West Side in NYC and throughout Paris in the late 2000s; gradually moving to canvas and most recently clothing. The shift from graffiti to canvas was made after an arrest in NYC and a conscious decision was made to use the name Das B to remain anonymous. His initial works were based on raw emotions expressed through vivid colors, influenced by the hip hop culture, skating lifestyle, and constant visits to museums and galleries. To this day, Das B’s art stands somewhere between fine art and commercial art as he is starting to approach a more accessible outlook to his artwork.

Das B was born in 1992 in Lyon, France. He never graduated from an art institution but spent his life visiting galleries and museums around the world as a way to learn about art history and themes expressed throughout the years – essentially making him a Naïve artist. That being said he did study briefly at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the early 2010s.

His influences come from a luxury background and the street art he found along his travels. His brief moments at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts along with the great artist of his time helped him find a voice. His works derives from a universe he created, in which he explores our most basic and animalistic thoughts and behaviors; simply laughing at the need for differentiation, constantly looking to adapt and reshape one’s identity via the characters of the universe he created. Ultimately rejecting a perceived truth to seek of deeper meaning through a cartoon like lense. Das B embraces what drive us the most, our need to fulfill ourselves, whilst focusing on keeping a positive outlook at all times. This need for a constant positive outlook derived from 2 major influences, the first being his acknowledgement of lack of smiles (with teeth) throughout the centuries, and secondly his inert desiraterum to be optimistic. He is inspired by who and what he believes to be odd – extravagant and unique in style (he likes Salvador Dali.) His moniker — Das What’s Up — came from an idea, a thrill being fulfilled that had to be expressed. This desire to express joy, although fleeting as all emotions are temporary, is a crucial factor in his creative process. Das Bear, his iconic bear, is the protagonist of the story, leading us through his interpretation of our lives as if we were like looking through a distorted mirror. Giving the viewer a glimpse into Das B’s thoughts, fears, dreams and environment. The core sensation that is embraced throughout his paintings is and always will be joy #daswhatsup #dasisgood
