Ricky Hunt lives and paints in Los Angeles. Much of his work is influenced by Egyptian hieroglyphics, graffiti and his tumultuous past that led to a paradigm shift in creativity and life in general. A brief period of drug addiction in the 1980's led to a term of incarceration. This in turn led to the discovery of his artistic talent and personal transformation through the love of art.
Ricky Hunt’s mixed media minimalism work reflects on how he brought order into the disorder of his earlier existence. 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 life. The top layer is covered with shiny resin, adding a smooth reflective finish to the intriguing depth of his minimalist works.
