Kevin Ledo grew up in a mix of urban and ethnic cultures in Montreal, raised by Portuguese parents from the Azores Islands. Ledo graduated from Dawson College in 1999 with a degree in illustration and design. Although art and painting have always been a part of his life, his art practice officially began in 2005. Ledo has participated in several mural festivals and public art initiatives in Canada and internationally, such as MURAL in Montreal, Canada, PangeaSeed Sea Walls in Toronto, Canada, FIAP in Cancun, Mexico, AptART in Zarqa, Jordan and Beirut, The Raw Project in Miami and Denver, and Street Prints in Christchurch and Mount Maunganui, New Zealand; among others.
Kevin Ledo’s artistic practice crosses the boundaries of mural painting, street art, fine art and art installation. Although he has always explored portraiture and the human form, in recent years Ledo has opened up to abstract art, mark-making and color theory, and has sought to integrate these seemingly opposing disciplines. Ledo draws influences and inspiration from a multitude of forces, including psychology and neuroscience, religious iconography, music and design. Firmly rooted in classical painting techniques and materials while being plugged into contemporary perspectives, Ledo also brings his elegant approach to realism to his compositions.
