Ripo painted this piece, Surreal But So Real, for this year’s Avant-Garde Urbano Festival in Tudela de Navarra, Spain. Besides the obvious (Steve Powers), Ripo is probably my favorite artist juggling signpainting, muralism and graffiti. I think the great thing about this wall, like many of Ripo’s walls, is that you can look at it from a variety of distances and angles and it should still be interesting. From straight on and a distance, there’s text to read or you can just look at it for its aesthetic value and ignore the text. From an angle, at least the colors brighten up an otherwise blank walls. From close up, there are details to catch.
