La Santa Muerte | Limited Edition Screen Print by Ravi Zupa
October 21, 2013
I see a lot of great art, but as an artist with an astounding command of a broad range of techniques and aesthetics, Ravi Zupa is a rare find. Ravi demonstrates mastery in a renaissance painting style, collage, printmaking, and drawing. The rich fusion of techniques in his work could be presumed to be appropriation, but it is not… all of the elements were rendered by Ravi. I’m very honored that Ravi included my Obey star graphic in his Santa Muerte screen print because I love the art and Ravi and I have several shared interests in D.I.Y. culture, printmaking, and propaganda art. I think the process Ravi used to create this piece is amazing: he cuts the art out of a traffic cone like a linoleum cut and uses the cone as his plate. That cone produced the black portion of this screen print with some small liberties taken. Ravi is a true craftsman and a unique talent. I urge anyone who is in the LA vicinity to come see Ravi’s work in person. -Shepard
