EL Loko´s Universal Language

"EL Loko´s concept of 'cosmic letters', which is used by him as a title for an entire series of paintings and sculptures, means a sort of program: It claims to create a universal language which is not only understandable on earth but in the entire universe.

This is a wish, a utopia and as well a desperate attempt. And, oddly enough, it contradicts the very personal and unique language of art developed by EL Loko which is „alien“ and hard to decipher like any other artistic language. "
