The Boney Toons or Bugs Boney, Mickey Mort and the broken heart «
The sculpture series Boney Toons or Bugs Boney, Mickey Mort and the broken heart, is my exhibition of my childhood heroes in their true and real appearance at present. Made of an unusual material mixture like, animal bones, bamboo, cardboard, plaster bandage, dental prothesis, rubberband, 18 karat gold and soisauce, these cartoon idols have been abused shamefully by the growing markting and profit gains since I was a kid. Therefore I´ll never be able to see them with my innocent eyes like I did when I was a little boy. So I send out my Toons as my personal artistic revenge.
Quote by the Exberliner Magazin:
\”Johannes Baptista Ludwig calls his visual creations \’anatomic surrealism\’. This exhibition at Neonchocolate Gallery comprising sculptures from his \’graphic moshpit\’ might make you rethink illustrative art, or give you nightmares about childhood heroes.\”
You can meet the Boney Toons personally at the upcoming stroke 5.0 artfair, from 16.10. to 17.10.2011 in Berlin at the stand of the Neon Chocolate Gallery. I´d be happy to meet you there.
