Don’t Get Me Wrong
Our man Ripo is proud to announce his first solo show in his adopted home of Barcelona at the Galeria Cosmo. In Don’t Get Me Wrong he’ll present a whole bunch of new works on wood, canvas, and paper as well as an installation and sculptural paintings. And he has been working relentlessly, since every time I spoke to him in the last couple of months he has been in his studio.
Ripo is not your everyday graffiti writer. Born and bred in New York, Ripo has been living in Barcelona since about 5 years. His work combines typography, calligraphy and painting. His public interventions can be anything between discreet and excessive. His messages are tinted by a subtle sarcasm and paradoxes. Influenced by the early skate and graffiti culture and his countless travels through Europe and Latin America, Ripo exhibited his wok -often illegally- in over 36 countries.
The pictures above are a special review and don’t forget to mark your calendars. If you can’t make it to Barcelona check the No New Enemies online shop, where we have some of his original works on offer.
