"Your painting is power. A terror where matter is man. There is a relationship that belongs only to you, between the forms-matter or man-animal, the invertebrate, and the backgrounds-color that give powers of transparency or reflection."
Letter from Gilles Deleuze to Dado, December 26, 1994

Dado, whose real name was Miodrag Djuric, was born on October 4, 1933 in Montenegro, then part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. After studying at the Belgrade Academy of Fine Arts, Dado moved to Paris in 1956, where he began exhibiting his work. Over the years, Dado gained international recognition for his distinctive artistic work. His paintings and prints have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums around the world, including MoMA and the Guggenheim Foundation in New York and the Centre Pompidou, and he was honored with many prestigious distinctions during his career.Despite his fame, Dado remained true to his artistic independence and continued to explore new creative territories until his death in 2010 in Paris.
