Olaf Ladousse, French artist from Madrid is for the first time in Ljubljana independently exhibiting a series of graphics works, mostly linocuts, accompanied by a series of unique electronic instruments.

Ladousse’s visual expression is characterized by a simple and clean drawing, full of numerous influences from the contemporary (pop) culture and street art, while often inspired by the common practices in comics and animation as well.

Olaf is also known for his unique instruments that he builds from throwaway electronic toys and other apparatus. These so-called doo-rags are tiny noisy devices and at the same also peculiar art objects whose visual design fits perfectly with the artist’s graphics work. During the opening night, the artist is going to carry out a musical performance using these instruments with the help of Carmen Espina.
