LUDO: green berry
Crazy Steet art – self publicity and socio-political commentary:
in the last couple of years LUDO has become one of the most talked about names in street art.
the parisian artist’s work depicts technology and contemporary consumer goods fused with
insects and plants. most pieces are produced as wheat pasted prints enhanced with fluorescent
green spray paint.
contained within the visually arresting concoctions LUDO creates there’s usually a critical
comment on consumerism and globalization, with famous logos and iconic products
transformed to have a more sinister appearance. LUDO’s feelings perhaps were most
clearly displayed in his series ‘co-branding’ where the artist branded his own images with
existing logos and placed them in bus shelters ‘commercializing’ his work in the process.
