About this Art
"This piece was actually inspired by what's called The Roman Standard. I end up studying a lot of ancient history. When the Romans would go into a battle, there would be a guy at the front that would be holding the standard, which is basically a big thing at the top of a pole/staff , usually a golden eagle. If you think about the army like a machine, like a car, the standard is basically the hood ornament. But that was how you knew your army was still standing, if the standard still existed. So I just played around with that idea, but instead of using an eagle, I used an owl, which is a symbol for wisdom. So that became the focal point of that piece. Everything that is revolving around is a play off of that idea. It was a very organic process of creating images and ideas of pieces that worked around it, it was all in a very improvised way. As I used a lot of acrylics to start out with, then over that I started to use ora crayon and India inks. " - Lebo

Lebo
Miami, Florida
David “LEBO” Le Batard is a Cuban American artist widely recognized for working in a wide spectrum of creative medium including murals, paintings and sculptures. The innovator of Postmodern Cartoon Expressionism, a movement that applied cartoon imagery and combined it with richly saturated balances of color, unique linear composition and ranging from the abstract to the highly narrative inspiring emotion and creating layers of meaning.

‘My aim in creating is to explore the purest, most spiritual elements of the arts and sciences (from astronomy to history, from music to physics) and to interpret them through the language of cartoons, giving them a unique and vibrant voice. After all, cartoons are a primordial form of expression that have always combined images in order to tell stories. We have only to think of rock paintings, hieroglyphics or religious iconography for our proof. In reality, even when we look at Picasso’s work after 1905, it all becomes very hard edged yet organic. The very essence of cartooning.ʼ – David ‘LEBO’ Le Batard

LEBO is more than an abstract artist and mural painter. He is a storyteller, a draftsman, and colorist who used the iconographic and emblematic power that exist in cartoons to create a graphic language that continually evolves in all applications of his art.
