French artist Ludo just completed this new piece on the streets of his hometown, Paris, captioning ‘Everything is gonna be ok’ on his IG.
Using his trademark fluorescent green, the artist just created his distinctive hybrid motif combining current topics and historic references with the earth being held by a statue wearing a gas mask. This is not the first artist’s take on current political and economical issues as you might have seen with his recent Brexit or R.I.P bitcoin pieces. Is everything gonna be ok? he questions, well we are not sure but we are really enjoying seeing these new pieces and Ludo’s interpretation.
A photographer, painter and drawer, Ludo is also fascinated by sculpturing, as seen in previous coverage, which allows him to give life in three dimensions to the creatures of his imagination.
In an interview with Sophie Pujas (Le Point) in 2015, he says “I use my own weapons to talk about what interests me. What I like is nature mixed with chaos, mechanics, robotics … It comes to me from my influences: I like the universe of chrome, but also curves, bodies, insects – And the Cronenberg films, where there is all that. A bunch of radish is transformed into clusters of syringes, a bee wears a gas mask; Human skulls gather together to form a bunch of grapes … traced with the precision of botanical illustrations in the largest formats as on miniature drawings, these hybrids emerging from the artist’s imagination are as elegant as they are ferocious’.
