"A Tale of the Greats" is a continuation of my Hip Hop Royalty series. The idea was to create a body of work that portrays icons that have inspired me through my years of growing up and painting. I wanted to experiment with a concept that would see these people as if they were in 17th Century Dutch fashion and poses….. This is my interpretation of Modern Day Royalty.
All works are oil on canvas. I do not digitally render or work from sketches . I fully commit myself to these works and spend hours trying to put my take on The Great Masters Works.
I am excited to be showing this collection and more at my solo show in San Francisco this August. I hope you enjoy the work as much as I have painting them.
This is the first full preview of the works. I’m putting them out to celebrate 4th July :D
For availability on any of these paintings please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all support everyone.
Ludo is a French artist known for pasting up black and white images with neon green accents on the streets on Paris and worldwide. His imagery often shows mutilated insects, animals, plants or different life forms with added mechanical parts. Strongly influenced by the skateboarding logos and punk imagery from the ’90s, his works comment on the way humans interact and interfere with nature. His limited color palette is a nod to DIY punk culture with its lo-fi, self-published zines and records, and certainly adds a feeling of rawness to his work. Read more on Hi-Fructose.
