People who have saved this event:


We’re thrilled to inform you that Jealous North is hosting Dave Buonaguidi’s solo show One Man’s Trash, running from 6th September - 1st October 2017. One Man’s Trash will exclusively reveal brand new work, fresh from Buonaguidi’s print table.


‘One Man’s Trash’ is the result of Dave Buonaguidi’s inherent desire to create, with the challenge of printing onto almost anything. Sourcing the most unusual materials, including school biology posters, Beano comics, flags and lighters, he emblazons them with his stylised and instantly recognisable font, re-appropriating images and objects from mainstream and using his bold phrases to frame them in a new context.

A pop-culture quote, a witty phrase or a heartwarming message (see: I Fucking Love This Place), Buonaguidi feeds his need to create by screenprinting onto the most difficult surfaces, recreating the objects into something else entirely and producing prints unprecedented in their scale and ambition. The work manifests  as a monument of our times or times past, making us look at the objects again, reassessing their worth and reevaluating their usefulness. A mindful nod to lighter times, the playful naïve-ness of the Beano comics, the ladybird pages, the harmless smut, the historic and reminiscent brought into the modern world.

The works in the exhibition will be a myriad of Buonaguidi’s collections and will be displayed as a house of curio, a delve into the past, updated with bold neon pink text overlays and a dash of wit.


‘I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs and never have done – I’ve always just found a huge amount of satisfaction in making shit. And so in a way, that’s my drug of choice. You get a double hit. You get to make something and you get to sell it to somebody.’
