About

Ricky Hunt’s work is influenced by Egyptian hieroglyphs, graffiti and his tumultuous past that led to a paradigm shift in creativity and life. He covers the canvas with unique imagery and geometric script, evoking the many experiences of his life. The harmony of the overall composition finds its way through his intricate markings into a cohesive visual statement. Hidden within the patterns and markings are limitless points of interest, constantly revealing new meanings for us to discover. His works are represented by Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles and have been exhibited at galleries and art fairs internationally, including New York, Zurich, Hong Kong and London. This one-of-a-kind original mixed-media painting is 48 inch tall by 36 inch wide. It is wired and ready to hang. The sides are painted as a continuation of the front. The artwork is wired and it does not require framing. It is signed and dated by the artist on the front and the back of the artwork. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable US and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. Philosophy, mathematics, scientific theory, poetry and astronomy are a few of the themes that run through his paintings and he expresses it with a constructed script and unique imagery. Hunt describes his contemporary text-based art, graffiti markings and cartoon like imagery as, “Chaotic order pouring from the watery depths of my unconscious”. Ricky Hunt lives and paints in Los Angeles. A brief period of drug addiction in the 1980's led to a term of incarceration for the artist. This in turn led to the discovery of his artistic talent and personal transformation through the love of art. He found inspiration in artists such as Basquiat and Haring. Hunt began to teach himself to draw in 1995. Nine months later Tiger Woods’ father Earl, commissioned a pastel portrait which he described as “The best portrait of Tiger ever painted”. From this foundation grounded in traditional drawing skills Hunt's work transformed into his contemporary painting approach seen today. His success started with his first sold-out exhibition in Los Angeles in 2016 which led to an international collector base and exhibitions worldwide.
