Ends in 3 days
“It’s a living” is not just a statement but also a life philosophy for Ricardo Gonzalez. He produces beautiful and simple calligraphic artworks in various ways, such as large-scale murals to commercial work for some of the biggest brands to simple stickers on the streets.
He started calligraphy, inspired by his grandfather, in 1960. He has gotten a strong influence from graffiti culture as well in his process and has studied typography in NY. His style has been strongly established by the fusion of calligraphy and typography that affects the sophisticated and graphical aesthetic while also keeping the vibe of street culture.
Throughout the titles of new artworks such as “Breathe”, “Walk,” and “Think, our behaviours that repeat so many times in our life are sprinkled. Like moments that keep on becoming a life, phrases rewritten by him get an abundant expression and become a message that shows strong existence in this unprecedented era. He keeps creating his artworks ambitiously in this Pandemic, taking an objective view by absorbing him in daily creation.
