An introduction to me – John Ledger (summer 2007)

I am John Ledger an artist from South Yorkshire, my mediums are: drawing, painting, t-shirt designing, postering actions, and songwriting.

Work is fueled by fears and concerns and more simply, the compulsion to be creative, and to be remembered, which is probally wht so many of my concerns are environmentally based. I am either up high or down in the depths, i try to reflect this by having an happy alter ego ‘ooon badger’ ( while john ledger concentrates on the seriousness of things.Here is some of my John Ledger work, t-shirts, and Ooon Badger respectively :

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
