"The idea for these pieces is that I've been playing with these childlike ghost images, it plays with the ideas of ghosts and what that represents. The idea of energy and how it is exchanged. Thinking about the different ways that we view the soul, and ways that the soul moves basically. These 4 pieces touch on that. Also, if you look at the Bombastic pieces, some of the embellishments draw on some of those elements, but these pieces focus on each one them. The parts that are hand-embellished for the Boombastic pieces also have some of these little characters as well. " - Lebo

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.
