Since his last public art intervention earlier this year (covered), Paris-based street artist, LUDO (interviewed), has been working tirelessly within the indoor confines of his studio, preparing for his first full fledged solo exhibition. Opening Thursday, April 7th, La Belle Vie will be an ambitious undertaking for the French talent, as he fills the 15 rooms of Zurich’s Starkart Gallery with his weapon clad insects and other nature based imagery fused with technological components, often with sociopolitical slants. Consisting of approximately 18 graphite and oil works on paper of varying sizes, along with a few installations (including one involving cars that will be displayed inside), the time spent experimenting in his studio and showing his work on gallery walls will help to fortify his already unique vision.
With these studio shots to provide a healthy preview of what’s to come, it appears LUDO will make the transition into a gallery in a big way. Check them out after the jump.
