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.

LUDO takes on cellphone communication technology and links it to nature themed imagery. see him in the video with the intricate wheatpaste on a large scale commandeered billboard in paris.
