Matto Le D. – cool retro art

by Modculture 22 September, 2006

Hardblues We’ve featured some very smart retro-styled art on this site in the past – Shag, Hisknibs and Kavel to name just three – but here’s another one to add to your list – Matto Le D.

Very much styled in that early 60s cartoon styling (he quotes his influences as commercials from the UPA studios and Jaques Tati movies), Matto’s artwork follows the lead of Shag in going for cocktails, tiki and beatniks, along with an occasional dose of Mod – but with his own twist.

The image here is for a comic Motto is currently working on, but if you want to pick up some of his work on canvas, you can buy limited prints (25 only of each) directly from his website. There’s also plenty of other material there to enjoy. Definitely one to watch for the future.
