Who is Dave Buonaguidi?

Hackney-based artist Dave Buonaguidi creates work that provokes and stimulates a reaction. Working mostly with word-based prints, he unites his own photography, vintage maps and pop culture images with poignant reflections.

Dave has worked in advertising for over 30 years, founding St. Luke’s, the world’s first Co-operative ad agency and most recently Karmarama in 2000.

In 2003 he created the iconic MAKE TEA NOT WAR poster for the anti-war march. It now is part of the collection at the V&A and hangs in the Trento museum of modern art. He loves to make work that creates a reaction.

Notable works by the artist include Buonaguidi’s London map series. In response to the divided London loyalties when it comes to the land on either side of the meandering river Thames, he has created a series of unique screenprints that best articulate Londoners’ allegiances.

Each map has been individually sourced by the artist and is a genuine piece of cartographic history! No map is the same, and offers the owner an opportunity to own a one-off work by the artist.
