The name of this edition of lithographs is coming from the declinaison of the name Lowis – Ludovicus – in Latin. Indeed it refers to the meaning of the classical Latin name Ludovicus which means « victorious in athletic games ».

In Latin, Ludus was meaning « game » and Vicus « winner ». RETNA chose also to refer to the name of the first French King Clovis whose name turns into Clouis and then Louis. Thus, these lithographs are a contemporary symbol of the name « Ludovicus » as someone glorious in war.

Retna

Los Angeles-based artist RETNA accesses spaces between text-based imagery and abstract emotive states with his mysterious lines of verse. Each block of text is a sophisticated system of hieroglyphs, calligraphy and illuminated script. With influences from Arabic, Egyptian, Hebrew, Anglo-Saxon (or Old English) and Native American typographies, RETNA’s distinctive language communicates a personal form of poetry. RETNA’s messages are masked in ciphers: words and meanings that are never immediately revealed, nor capable of being accurately translated. He employs ancient totemic symbologies as a baseline, overlaid with beats from the urban jungle (sourced from his background in Los Angeles, born from Pipil – western indigenous El Salvadorian – Cherokee, Spaniard, and African-American bloodlines. These diverse subcultures are channeled into his work, often accompanied (either in the studio or on the street) by a stream of ambient or musical sounds. It is this multi-sensory experience that is brushed onto the surface for RETNA: a synthesis of auditory and visual content, spontaneously manifested.
