L.E.T. is a French born Stencil artist. The abbreviation L.E.T. is broken down as „Les Enfants Terribles“. He has chosen this pseudonym with a cause. Traditionally outsiders and eccentrics were referred to this from the artistic community. L.E.T. is one of the street artists of the first hour. Since 1992, he has been active on the street and shaped the image of some cities, including that of his today’s hometown Duesseldorf. He sprays his motives on paper and then placarded them as “Cutout” in the city.
In his paintings, he draws on all kind of imagery, also sometimes known subjects, which he provides with rather charming, provocative statements and thus assigns them a new meaning. Black-and-white figures with – sometimes – just a few color accents make the statement even more emphasized.
And there are always the issues of our times, that LET critically pokes to reveal on shortcomings in our consumer- and fun society in a tongue in cheek manner.
L.E.T.´s artistic career is marked by many worldwide group exhibitions and Urban Art conventions. The consequent development as an artist lead him the way to the gallery, where the ephemeral street art can be kept and conserved. In his works for the „white cube“ he prefers gallery quality media such as canvas, cardboard and wood, which has no effect on its distinctive style.
