Sam Dodson is a professional artist and former musician in Loop Guru and the Transmitters. His art explores collage in varying forms with intervention and construction. Sam’s works have been featured in over ten Dada and Surrealism books and magazines. His works have also appeared on album sleeves.
He has had pieces exhibited twice at the Saatchi Gallery.
He's also been involved in a project called fivers4artistic alongside such luminaries as Sir Peter Blake, Gilbert and George, Ralph Steadman and Damien Hirst amongst others. The project involves decorating old five pound notes in whatever form you like these will be exhibited and then sold at auction. Proceeds go to charity.
"Dada artist Sam Dodson describes himself as ‘a man trapped in his own collage’ and surrounds himself with a cornucopia of comic books, found objects and curious ephemera in an atmospheric studio on Johnson’s Island in Brentford🤡 Sam, aka Salman Gita, is also a talented musician who performed in the post-punk band The Transmitters in the 1970’s before forming the world beat band Loop Guru during the 1990’s and adorning many an album cover with his surreal collages" Bob Osborne, curator "Cash is King".
