Critical Review

Ludo 1 is the only truly figurative image in the series. Dominated by the colour red, the following prints of the Ludo series depict eyes, limbs, and other body parts in abstracted forms. The series’ simplified forms, like Haring’s other work, betrays the influence of the Pop Art movement and a childhood filled with Dr. Seuss, Disney, and Looney Tunes. However, the Ludo series comes at a moment of transition for Haring. As the AIDS epidemic overtook his community in the mid-1980s, Haring’s artwork reflected his increasing involvement in advocacy for the disease.
