Ricardo Cavolo is a magnificent storyteller. At a young age, he traded in his colouring pencils for brushes and has been creating illustrations to tell his stories ever since. Today, this young artist who was born in Salamanca but now lives in Barcelona, is one of the most renowned muralists in the world and his work can be found at the best art galleries in London, Los Angeles or Montreal.
Everything about Ricardo Cavolo inspires and fascinates us: his direct and irreverent style, the energy he transmits with each brushstroke, the mastery with which he creates colour, his tattooed characters, and that Mediterranean fire that appears over and over in his stories.
When Ricardo agreed to create a print for our SS17 collection, we were burning with anticipation to see his proposal.
He did not disappoint us. It’s called Flames and we are still all fired up about it.
