West Hollywood’s Wallspace Gallery is teaming up with Superfine Art Fair in Downtown Los Angeles to showcase the world of Little Ricky. After an incredible immersive inaugural show at Wallspace, the show continues at Superfine this weekend starting today at The Magic Box Downtown at The Reef located at 1933 S. Broadway, Los Angeles. The four-day art event is highlighting the works of women artists, LGBTQ Artists, and artist people of color from October 13th-16, 2022. Doors open at 8 p.m.
Coined the “worlds most inclusive art fair”, Superfine will feature more than 80 handpicked artists in a maze of beautifully finished ten foot high walls adorned with the top contemporary art from around the world and programming that’s educational, enlightening, and entertaining with a whole new take on what a contemporary art fair should be. The art fair is hand-curated by a team of experts and showcases the top up-and-coming talent from around the world for a true redefinition of an emerging art.
Little Ricky is bringing the world of pink, sheep, moonsters, dreams and thoughts to Superfine Art Fair. The native Angeleno, gay man and Latinx queer street artist, started his career in 1988 with an uncommon discipline and work ethos in his practice. “Little Ricky” has been studying, developing, archiving, and formulating his campaigns on the street and in galleries for over 3 decades. The pink sheep are a part of the LGBTQ+ queer community and also the street art world, inspired immensely by the biography of famous clothing designer, Alexander McQueen who referred to himself not as the black sheep but as a “pink sheep.”
Thus began the turn to “pink sheep” and his many characters known as “Moonsters”, beginning as stickers on the streets and now to complex canvases shown at galleries. Ricky’s art is about color – rainbow colors that reflect who e(we) are as a community. At the heart and soul of the series is the idea that e(we) are all different. E(we) are all queer. E(we) are all crazy beautiful.
The Superfine art fair began in NYC and Miami, and quickly expanded to their DC art fair in 2018. Shortly afterward, they brought their unique approach to art fairs in Los Angeles and San Francisco, connecting top local and global artists to an art-hungry populous eager to discover new artists and their work. Upcoming art fairs include Seattle, Dallas, and Chicago throughout 2022/23.
