Biography

Translation in progress

Kevin Ledo’s artistic practice crosses back and forth through the boundaries of mural/street art, fine art, and gold leaf art installations. Ledo aims to create visually bold, and iconic compositions, focusing on portraiture and the human form interlaced with stylized abstract forms. Ledo’s figures are mostly void of foreground and background, and are suspended in a minimalistic and slightly surreal world, captured in moments of contemplation, intimacy, emotion and wonderment..

The subject and approach to Ledo’s artwork changes according whether it’s public art or his personal explorations in fine art. While there is a common visual thread between these different artistic activities, his public art has several different considerations that are taken into account before creating. Some of these considerations include the neighbourhood the mural is set to be in and the history of the area and people who live there. Ledo’s public murals are often celebrations of people and diversity and aim to relate to the communities they are found in. Whenever possible, Ledo’s own photography is used as reference for his murals. In some cases the people used in Ledo’s murals are people from the local community.

Ledo traces his influences and inspiration to a multitude of forces including religious iconography and spiritual art, travelling, music, graphic design and photography, psychology, buddhist philosophy and ideas and literature on the concepts infinity, consciousness, and perception.
