New Works On Paper by Kevin Ledo
1xRUN is excited to present an exclusive collection of abstract works on paper from Murals in the Market alum Kevin Ledo! The contemporary artist and muralist has created an alluring series of exploratory and spontaneous mixed-media paintings, marking a stylistic departure from the photorealistic portraits for which he is best known. Although geometric shapes and patterns have always typified his art, Ledo says “it was time to let my abstract tendencies stand alone, and live a life void of anything recognizable.”
"These works are very spontaneous, intuitive, messy and lots of fun. Most of my work is planned out to a certain degree, and these works gave me the chance to just ride out some mark making, and let the pieces evolve in the spot.
I’ve been playing with abstract for about 2 years now, and am taking it more and more seriously. While I still enjoy realistic portraiture, I needed a new outlet, something with more energy and spontaneity, mark making, texture, and exploration of materials. Geometric abstraction has always inspired me, artists like Kadinsky and Rothko, as well as analytical cubism from Braques and Picasso really had an effect on me. My work has incorporated geometric shapes for more than a decade, it’s just never looked at as abstraction because there was a figure involved. I figured it was time to let it stand alone, and live a life void of anything recognizable." - Kevin Ledo
