Biography / LUDO

Ludovic Vernhet, known by the name Ludo and sometimes even referred to as Nature’s Revenge, is an artist born and raised in Paris. As an ever-changing character of urban contemporary art, Ludo’s art is expressed through diverse mediums, from giant murals on streets, to canvases, installations, drawings, sculptures and photographs as gallery and museum exhibition pieces. Ludo is part of the class of 2018 in the URBAN NATION Artist in Residence Programme.

Ludo utilizes a signature style of no other, the use of three colours in his work; black, white and neon green. Precise drawings of biotechnological occurrences, merged with our technological dimension. The metamorphosis of a butterfly with brass knuckles, tulips bundled with barbed wire, a rose with thorns replaced by razors; it is through this work in which Ludo aims to reveal the opposites that we share our world with and are reconciled by way of the creation of these hybrids organisms.

The works of Ludo have not gone unnoticed neither, as an integral part of urban contemporary art he is seen as a key figure deep in the foundations of URBAN NATION, most notably his ‘Enjoy the Violence’ installation in 2017 and more recently, a collaboration piece with Imagine Dragons and Lollapalooza 2018.
