I found Ripo through Roa, as the two have done some pieces together. Ripo is just one of those artists who can make me smile with slogans like “Steal This Space?” painted over a billboard or “Misunderstood” next to some graffiti. His use of simple designs and classic “storefront sign” fonts reminds me of ESPO and Above (whom he has collaborated with in the past). Anyways, I’m not so great at explaining exactly what makes work great, so just have a look.
Ripo’s very first solo show, “is what I meant to say…”, is opening in Brussels on March 27th at the Mr. Ego space. Check out the flyer:
