“A Quarantine Daydream” is a timely collection of work, ranging from the abstract to the Afro-futuristic, that reflect a vibrant “alternate universe” dreamscape. Cujo Dah is known for his murals and paintings that incorporate both tribal and futuristic themes. This new body of work expounds on those themes with an emphasis on moods; portraits of feelings ranging from ennui to skeptical hope. Due to the current state of events, many artists are reflecting on their work and how they can best respond to what is happening. Cujo Dah is revealing an introspective perspective which is both personal and universal.
With a multi-disciplinary approach and unique vision, Cujo Dah’s works are of various mediums and surfaces. From large outdoor murals to small figurines - anything’s game. He believes art should not be confined or restricted, as long as it is executed with integrity and skill. The content of his pieces vary, but more often than not, they intersect humor, human behavior and city life.
