Ludo in Bangkok

Street artist LUDO is bouncing about Asia at the moment and recently emailed over some images of his works in the streets of Bangkok… such a photogentic city.

Fun fact: Bangkok currently holds the Guinness record for having the longest name of a place. Apparently “Bangkok” is just the short version because the city’s ceremonial name is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”

ok but i dont get why the band LUDO isnt super popular on tumblr??

they have a couple songs about depression and anxiety and that sort of thing (and overcoming it even if it’s just for a while)

they have love songs that make you want to cry because they’re so beautiful

they have songs about the death of a loved one

they have songs about breakups

they have cute and silly songs

they have songs that challenge today’s society/culture

they have whipped cream

robots

they have at least two songs that mention pirates (hum along and rotten town)

they had a weeaboo phase

they have a full rock opera about a man who dedicated his whole life to building a time machine so he could go back in time to say goodbye to his wife on the morning of her fatal car accident but everything goes wrong. 

ludo is great ok?

ludo should be tumblr’s next big thing

Hi everyone!! I’m so happy I finally got this done!! After months of work it’s actually complete!! I hope you like it!!

I apologize for the inconsistent style, my motivation was fluctuation a lot with this! But now that it’s done and I’m happy with my art style I’ll be working on my comic and may be opening commissions ((if anyone would be interested that is.))

"Self-loathing is quaint," 

you told me, showing restraint.

Now you’re gone and I’m lost,

In the swells I am tossed -

bobbing and choking and losing the fight in the fog.

You said, “Forever…” Tell me, why can’t you stay?

Ludo is a French artist known for pasting up black and white images with neon green accents on the streets on Paris and worldwide. His imagery often shows mutilated insects, animals, plants or different life forms with added mechanical parts. Strongly influenced by the skateboarding logos and punk imagery from the ’90s, his works comment on the way humans interact and interfere with nature. His limited color palette is a nod to DIY punk culture with its lo-fi, self-published zines and records, and certainly adds a feeling of rawness to his work. Read more on Hi-Fructose

Latest Painting - “Thirteen Hours” (Labyrinth - 18” x 24” Acrylic / Gesso / Color Pencil on Canvas)

"And so the girl suffered in silence. Until one day, when she was tired from a day of housework, and she was hurt by the harsh words of her stepmother, and she could no longer stand it…"

Finished! Very, very happy - certainly a turning point for me :) Thank you for your incredibly kind words and support throughout the creation of this piece -always genuinely appreciated.

Going to give it a chance to dry, then I’ll scan it for prints. Like some sort of art detective. Acrylock!
