Ricky Hunt "Teal Sunrise 5" Contemporary Painting
Ricky Hunt’s mixed media minimalism work is influenced by his tumultuous past that led to a paradigm shift in creativity and life. He covers the wood panel with layers of acrylic paint, removing some layers in the process to reveal the underlying evolution of color. His modern works evoke the many layers of his life. The top layer is covered with shiny resin, adding a smooth reflective finish to the intriguing depth of his minimalist works. The harmony of the overall composition results in a cohesive visual statement. Hidden within the layers are limitless points of interest, constantly revealing new intricacies for us to discover. His works are represented by Artspace Warehouse and have been exhibited at galleries and art fairs internationally, including Los Angeles, New York, Zurich, Hong Kong and London. This one-of-a-kind colorful painting is 30 inch square. It is wired and ready to hang. The front is covered with resin while the sides are painted in a separate process without the application of resin. It does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the back of the artwork, and it can be installed vertically as well as horizontally. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable US and international shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by Artspace Warehouse is 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 unique imagery. Hunt describes his contemporary 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, Haring and Rothko. 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 at Artspace Warehouse in Los Angeles in 2016 which led to an international collector base and exhibitions worldwide.
