Artist in residence

There are various reasons why artists like to do an residency. I think every artist will agree on the fact that once a while a complete new working environment will motivate and provide new skills and approaches.
Hereby we give you a small compilation about Canadian artist Kevin Ledo who’s  is now doing an artist in residence in China.

Kevin Ledo: 

I’ve been doing a residency at Jardin Orange here in Shenzhen, China, for 5 weeks. I’ve been mostly focusing on oil and gold leaf paintings, but had to squeeze in a mural!

It’s been almost non stop work, and whenever I get the chance I check out the city. I love to eat the delicious food, check out the insane architecture and mix into the big crowds. It’s a very new and interesting city, with lots of potential to be leading the way in China’s future.

Jardin Orange
is great, I have a sweet pad and a great big studio to work in. I painted the mural directly on the Jardin Orange building.

Finished mural “Flow the Chi” is done with latex and spray paint, about 24 feet high.  Despite the off and on rain, I managed to pull this off.
Thanks to Jardin Orange for the hook ups, Feng Ya Ping for being my model and for @rlevices for helping me photograph her.
