About

Ricky Hunt’s work is influenced by Egyptian hieroglyphs, graffiti, and his tumultuous past that led to a paradigm shift in his creative life. He covers the canvas with unique imagery and geometric script, evoking many of his personal experiences. The harmony of the composition finds its way through his intricate markings in a cohesive visual landscape. Hidden within the patterns and depictions are limitless points of interest, constantly revealing new meanings for discovery.

This one-of-a-kind 48 inch high by 36 inch wide painting is wired and ready to hang. The sides of this original artwork are painted as a continuation of the front and it does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles delivery and installation, including placement and hardware. Affordable US and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery 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 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 in the Los Angeles area. 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 Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith 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 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.

Much of Ricky Hunt’s work is influenced by Egyptian hieroglyphics, graffiti and his tumultuous past. A brief period of drug addiction in the 1980's, he was incarcerated which led to the discovery of his artistic talent and personal transformation through the love of art.

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 current style.

Hunt is inspired by philosophy, mathematics, scientific theory, poetry and astronomy and these themes appear in his work repeatedly. He describes his chosen imagery as, "Chaotic order pouring from the watery depths of my unconscious.”

The unique designs with which he covers each canvas flow from him fluidly, like a melody. The harmony of the overall composition finds its way through his intricate markings into a cohesive visual statement. Hidden in the patterns and markings are limitless points of interest, constantly revealing new meanings.
