Artist Statement

My work explores the relationship between the body and urban spaces. With influences as diverse as Picasso, Dali and Andy Warhol, new tensions are crafted from both opaque and transparent layers infused with rich textures and colors. Ever since I was a pre-adolescent I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the moment. What starts out as vision soon becomes corrupted into a dialectic of greed, leaving only a sense of chaos and the prospect of a new understanding. As momentary replicas become distorted through frantic and critical practice, the viewer is left with an epitaph for the edges of our condition.


On October 16, 1994; Ludovic Nkoth (LNkoth) was born in Cameroon, West Africa. Growing up in African, Ludovic learned to express himself creatively at a very young age. Through his vibrant use of color and ability to capture life through a distinct lens, Ludovic’s past time was consumed with rough sketches of the beautiful cities of Cameroon. At the age of 12, Ludovic moved to the US, bringing with him an artistically brilliant mind and a passion for art. Exploring his artistic abilities, Ludovic established a distinct style of brush strokes and use of color. His style consists of depicting energy and emotion through color choices; creating expressive art, to stimulate the viewer’s mind, compelling him/her to interact with the piece. As of now, Ludovic continues to grab the attention of collectors and surrounding galleries, with his astonishing work throughout.
