RICKY LEE GORDON (ZA)

Ricky Lee Gordon is best-known for his large-scale murals inspired by his experience in mediation and Buddhist Dharma (law of nature). His paintings explore the nature of non-duality and interconnectedness, with a focus on bringing to light relevant social issues. 

Born in Johannesburg South Africa in 1984, Ricky Lee Gordon only started painting full-time in 2014. Before this his main focus was curatorial and creative activism; co-founding /A WORD OF ART gallery, project space and artist residency in addition to the Colour Ikamva school rejuvenation project, which aimed to re-imagine education through creativity and self-empowerment. In 2016, he moved to Los Angeles to study classical painting, which is where he now resides. 

He has received the British Council Young Creative Entrepreneur Award and been shortlisted for the IAPA International Award for Excellence in Public Art. His achievements in public art and activism have been covered by The Guardian (‘200 young people in South Africa who make a difference’) and CNN among others.
