About Ludwig Wagner
Ludwig's multi-faceted life experience is reflected in his art. He produces work inspired by the people, objects and places he encounters - past, present and imaginary. His work, which at first glance might seem purely representational, is always searching for what lies beneath and beyond the surface, an exploration of where he sees himself within his environment, looking for subjects which reflect his current state of mind. Deeply autobiographical, it's mostly a visual diary of his everyday life and mood.
iPhoneography is his current passion (creating and editing his work on an iPhone) for which he received Honourable Mentions in the Travel (2013), Digital Fine Art (2014) and Photojournalism (2014) categories of the International Mobile Phototography Awards (www.mobilephotoawards.com). One of his photographs also received an Honourable Mention and was selected for the annual Shadow Stories: The Art of Mobile Black & White, a digital exhibition in New York and Toronto in June 2014.
Another of his photographs was recently selected for the National Open Art Competition Exhibition, the UK's biggest art competition, and exhibited at Somerset House in London from 18th September – 25th October 2014.
Ludwig was born in South Africa where he studied Art at the University of Pretoria. Ludwig worked for a few years as a teacher and then in the film industry, one of the passions of his life. He now lives in London and runs a creative agency focused on design and advertising.
