Prodip Leung is a Hong-Kong based painter, illustrator and graphic designer. Well known also as the bassist of the controversial Cantonese hip hop group LMF (Lazy Mutha Fucka), Prodip studied graphic design and has combined a career in music with experimental art.
From the 1980s, working across media, Prodip designed underground concert posters, flyers and CD covers, later producing striking visuals for leading international and local brands. His artwork is peopled with tribes of hybrid aliens and draws on traditions of street art, cartoons, and pop subcultures that challenge the boundaries of conventional art-making.
In The 14th Factory Prodip created the in-situ “alien” sculptures for The Barmecide Feast installation, both in response to, and as replacements of, the original classical European sculptures that featured in the original set piece in Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey. One of Prodip Leung’s paintings also appears in The 14th Factory environment.
