World famous ‘urban artist’ Kevin Ledo opened this month his exhibition at GO Gallery in Amsterdam. The Canadian artist invited 14 artists as part of ‘The Impeccable Bunch‘ visible up until July 2018.
Ledo is particularly famous worldwide for his impressive murals, like his nine-story-high Leonard Cohen in Montreal and his Facing the Future mural in Lebanon.
Yet Ledo still makes time to work with canvas, resulting in a large amount of work with a striking individuality. These works – in a color scheme that breathes a touch of retro – take the Canadian for his first Dutch exhibition in GO Gallery. The emphasis in Ledo’s work is on the lifelike human form, which is often interwoven with geometrically abstract light spheres, halos and vector lines. They reflect moments of intimacy, joy and wonder.
For the exhibition ‘The Impeccable Bunch’ Kevin Ledo – who is characterised by his engaging, down-to-earth mentality – also invited 14 artists from North America and Europe. They have painted walls together with Kevin Ledo or they are on his list of favourite artists.
It is Mr. June, Paola Delfin, Marina Capdevila, Jason Botkin, Jonathan Bergeron, Labrona, Jon Todd, Dourone, A Squid called Sebastian, Laurence Vallieres, Celeste Byers, Melanie Garcia, Serge KB and Ard Doko. The latter two were presented to Ledo by Oscar van der Voorn and Farud Cambatta from GO Gallery. “And there was an immediate artistic click,” says Ledo.
‘The Impeccable Bunch” is a wonderful exhibition with so many fantastic artists in this composition of Kevin Ledo.
