"This piece was actually inspired by what's called The Roman Standard. I study a lot of ancient history, and in battle 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.

There was a bit of negative space that existed after I had finished the painting and I really wanted to expound on some of the smaller elements that were around the piece so that it would create something that would individualize each piece. It basically started with taking these micro-elements in the artwork, and making it kind of a macro part. Also, I thought it was important that each piece is breaking out of the composition image, drawing it out and really bleeding off the image. I really wanted to add more depth and make each one feel more like an original piece that way." - 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.
