Ricky Hunt’s minimalist resin paintings are influenced by his tumultuous past that led to a paradigm shift in his creative practice. Hunt constantly experiments with new techniques. 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 process; adding and subtracting visual elements. Hunt describes his contemporary imagery as, “Chaotic order pouring from the watery depths of my unconscious”. Beneath the water, one can see the intermingling thoughts of the artist pushing through.
This vibrant one-of-a-kind minimalist painting on wood is 30 inches tall by 24 inches wide. It is wired and ready to hang. It does not require framing.

Hunt's works reflect how he brought order into the chaos of his earlier existence. He covers wood panels with layers of color-tinted resin, adding a smooth reflective finish to the intriguing depth of his surfaces. His works arise from a process of a carefully planned play of colors alongside elements to express the fluidity of the media.
Ricky Hunt is part of the rising Los Angeles art scene. A brief period of drug addiction in the 1980s 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, Keith Haring and Mark 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 traditional foundation in fine art, Hunt's work transformed into the contemporary painting approach seen today.
Ricky Hunt's international 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. Notable private collectors include Kelly Clarkson, Graeme Hart, Sonia Livingstone, and Charles Harder.
