In a near future, man will have given birth to machines that are able to rewrite their codes, to improve themselves, and, why not, to dispense with them. This idea sounded a little bit distant to some critic voices, so an experiment was to be done: keep the AI sealed in a box from which it could not get out except by one mean: convincing a human guardian to let it out.
Could we chess match our best creation to grant our own survival? Would man be humble enough to accept he was superseded, to look for primitive ways to find himself back, to cure himself from a disease that’s on his own genes? How to capture a force we voluntarily set free? What if mankind worst enemy were humans?
In a near future, we will cease to be the dominant race.
In a near future, we will learn to fear what is to come.
Living in a world that does not respect diversity, thus living in a world that right or wrong submits to the will of the manipulated majority, true freedom is just a mere utopia. The path of the righteous has been forgotten and misled behind the generally accepted ideologies and societal taboos. Our dreams are now forbidden and they remain repressed, our hopes and expectations are tightly sealed in the bottom of a bottle and "willingly" thrown in the ocean destined to remain in the dark, in return of a "normal" life.
MrDheo from Portugal finds himself fighting within his dream and waking up at the beautiful beach of "Votsalaki" at Mykonos, the beach that legendary Hercules overpowered by himself the tyranny of the Giants in a fierce battle, according to the myth. By his side he finds one of those bottles that entrap our hopes and travel around the ocean without reason or destination. Inside the bottle he finds the sketch of a mysterious beautiful girl and MrDheo sees in her eyes the perfect freedom form that is hidden deep in the ocean and is missing from our lives. Without thinking twice he jumps into the ocean to find her and she gives him a single moment of true freedom, a moment that all the money in the world cannot buy and...she vanishes again in the deep blue. Emerging on the surface MrDheo finds himself alone in the magic oasis of Votsalaki resort and his spray cans floating on the water. He instantly depicts the look of perfect freedom on the wall and then he throws the bottle entrapping her back in the water. Maybe the next recipient manages to keep her forever with us... This night MrDheo followed his dream, even for a single moment... YOU?
Living in a society that does not dream is like living in a society that is already dead. SPREADING THE INSPIRATION AND THE EXPRESSION THROUGH ART. DESIGNWARS.

MrDheo always related to Art is an autodidact and the first contact with graffiti appeared at the age of fifteen. Soon his drawings turned into countless letter studies. Months later he did his first street painting and started to meet other artists to whom he related and that motivated him to carry on. Today, after twelve years of continuous work he collaborates with well-known international brands and companies, though he still thinks the street as the perfect place to create. Versatile, he dedicates himself mostly to photo realistic productions which, together with graphic components, gives him a very personal style in constant growth and development and has placed him among the most successful Portuguese graffiti artists.

Living in a world of "breaking" news, in a world that information serves the weaken purposes of a few, in a world that the disastrous end seems to be near by our refuge is our memories, our childhood, our lost innocence, the truly free moments we have lived.
When our eyes close and rest, the kid we have purposely neglected and trapped deep inside in our subconscious, awakens and asks a bit of the stolen happiness the few and the powerful stole from us, claims the right to live unconcerned and free despite the grey reality we have to indulge and endure. The child in us sees through the blackness and fire of the modern metropolitan cities, the flower that blossoms.
The child in us sees through the lies and the fall of man, the hope that arises. The child in us, our inner vision is the personal treasure each one of us keeps in the inside, it is the miracle each one of us needs to awaken from the lethargy and overthrow it's oppressors.
