John Ledger and Humans in cages

Humans in cages is not a graffiti tag name, or a secret code name. Tho i do a lot of work intended to situated in outdoor places, i don’t class putting up pictures and planting trees etc as illegal, therefore i have no need to hide behind the name.
The name is there, because it fits my work…because when i put my work into the surrounding environment, i get the feeling of freedom, like my chains have come loose for that brief moment. My art is in its purest form in this environment, sadly I’ve got to display most of work inside this cage, because sadly i cannot dispossess all my work so easily. id wake up crying if so.


Me, and fellow artist friends: Richard Kitson and Bradley Sharp will be exhibiting our work next month.
In a small room in The Hive Gallery, Elsecar near Barnsley, we will be showing some of of our most recent work.
There is no running them, we all work very differently, its just 3 friends from the Barnsley area, making the most of one of the first galleries to be open to this in Barnsley.
The Exhibition starts 13 November, and runs for 2 weeks,
but please be aware that the gallery only opens Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun. 12pm-4pm

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.
