About

Ricky Hunt’s mixed media minimalist wall art 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 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 have been exhibited at galleries and art fairs internationally, including in Los Angeles, New York, Zurich, Hong Kong, and London.

This original painting delves into the realm of color field abstraction, echoing the visual philosophy of Mark Rothko. This one-of-a-kind artwork is 16 inches high by 12 inches wide. 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. The application of a lustrous resin unifies this visual paradox, elevating it to a harmonious synthesis. It does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the back of the artwork. It can be installed vertically as well as horizontally. Convenient local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and international shipping are available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

Hunt's works reflect how he brought order into the chaos of his earlier existence. Philosophy, mathematics, scientific theory, poetry, and astronomy are a few of the themes that run through his paintings and he expresses them with unique imagery. Hunt describes his contemporary imagery as, “Chaotic order pouring from the watery depths of my unconscious”. He divides his artworks into segments enveloped in a singular, intense hue. Drawing inspiration from the symbolic dualism found in the works of Kandinsky, this painting harmonizes opposing colors with a tactile finesse. The artist employs a process akin to a subtractive technique, scratching away layers to expose the latent chromatic narrative beneath.

Ricky Hunt lives and paints in Los Angeles. Hunt began to teach himself to draw in 1995. Nine months later Tiger Woods’ father Earl, commissioned a pastel portrait that 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. He found inspiration in artists such as Basquiat, Haring, and Rothko.

Ricky Hunt's 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.

Ricky Hunt, a highly acclaimed artist known for his international success, draws inspiration from the intricate layers of life, delving into themes of philosophy, mathematics, scientific theory, poetry, and astronomy. His abstract art serves as a captivating exploration of the interplay between organic and geometric shapes, inviting viewers into a world of profound meaning and personal reflection. Hunt's artistic journey has been marked by a transformation towards minimalism, where he skillfully crafts mixed media pieces that encapsulate his own evolution and growth.

Having embarked on his artistic journey in 1995, Hunt's initial exploration of traditional drawing techniques soon gave way to a distinctive style that would define his career. Through his meticulous approach, Hunt applies and removes layers of acrylic paint, revealing the underlying evolution of color and texture beneath. This process mirrors the layers of his own life, symbolizing the journey from chaos to harmony. The surfaces of his works are further elevated by a final touch: an application of lustrous resin. This glossy coating not only adds a smooth and reflective finish but also serves as a metaphorical representation of the intriguing depth found within the layers of his art.
