It’s another special this week as yet another French artist has spent time some time decorating the streets of Barcelona recently. Ludo was in town for around a week or so and left a host of paste up’s scattered around. Interestingly he left them in places definitely not where you would usually find such works.
Ludo is based in Paris but you can see his work all over the globe. Just before arriving in Barcelona he created an enormous piece on the Berlin Olympic stadium for Urban Nation.
Ludo’s work is most often a hybrid of botanical and human or mechanical. For example above you can see a death star as cherries hanging from a tree. Or below, human skulls as grapes and a genetically modified Strawberry.
The artist’s work is clearly trying to bring attention to the effect we as humans have on the planet. The artists own bio on his website states that our time here will be fleeting if we continue on the same path.
Great to see such an experimental and interesting artist hit the streets of Barcelona. Much like Manyoly last week hopefully if he comes back in the future he will leave us something more permanent.
