Denver native Ravi Zupa strongly believes that the best way to study and spend time with art is to do so through books and has spent decades doing it himself. He thinks that it’s important to see work in person – to examine details and imperfections – but sees more value in connecting with many more images created by an artist all at once. Over his years of practice and study Ravi has spent time especially flipping through books filled with the work of German Renaissance print makers, Flemish primitives, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists, Mughal paintings, religious iconography from Europe, Asia and Pre-Columbian Latin America, and revolutionary propaganda. The different techniques and themes inherent in those artistic movements are the same that combine and clash together in the artist’s own work. His integration of these images that sometimes appear to have no relation is in an attempt to communicate something universal and deep. Ponder and examine the artwork of Ravi Zupa below!
