Ludo (interviewed) is opening a solo show at White Walls in San Francisco on September 14. The title of the show is Destructionis Hostis Vespa, which is a name of the creature around which the entire show is centered. He also created a sculpture of this mechasect cross between a combat airplane and a wasp, which will be displayed in the middle of the room. Made with resin and spray paint in an edition of 3 and measuring 8.5″ x 2″ x 4.5″, this is the French artist’s first sculptural edition since Pina Colada was released last year.
Along with this showstopper piece, there will also be 10 paintings displayed, showing the same creature from different angles. Created with graphite and spray paint on paper, these 28 x 20″ paintings are technical blueprints which were used to make the actual 3D piece. Using his signature style of black and white with a bright green accent, Ludo created a very coherent body of work for this show, showing both painted and sculptural works. The show will be on view until October 05, so make sure you check it out if you’re in the area.
