Ricky Lee Gordon
Abandoned House, Gaios

Ricky Lee Gordon (1984, Johannesburg, South Africa) lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. Having lived and worked in Cape Town he moved to Los Angeles in 2016 to study classical painting. He is a self-taught artist and well known for his large scale murals that can be seen in cities all over the world, from New York to Istanbul and Madagascar to Kathmandu.

Ricky has been inspired by his experiences in meditation and Buddhist Dharma (law of nature). His paintings explore the nature of non-duality and interconnectedness focusing on bringing to light relevant social issues and universal truths. His intention with his murals is to create artwork that has a connection to the people and place in which he is painting.
