Max Rippon Mini Interview
    Thursday, 20 December 2012 /// Written by Trippe

As we approach the Holidays (are we there now?), we thought we'd check in with some of the artists currently showing in our Winter Group Show at FFDG on display through Jan 12th.

We've been posting up Barcelona based Max Rippon's (RIPO) work for years now (since 2009?). He does a lot of it outdoors and some of it indoors like he did with his recent show at White Walls (pics).

For some press release terminology: Heavily influenced by sign painting, Ripo creates text-based work with an urban aesthetic, exploring single words and short turns of phrase with a tongue-in-cheek sensibility. Elaborately-drawn fonts, formed with watercolor, ink, graphite, sign painters enamel and oil pastels on delicate handcut paper, allow us to appreciate the aesthetics of the words regardless of their associations.... Here is a short interview with the prolific fella covering all the bases.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

Barcelona, Spain. Coming around the bend of thirty years. Educated. www.ripovisuals.com

"Untitled" currently showing @FFDG

How would you describe your work to someone?

Alphabetic. Calligraphic. Sarcastic. Serious. Destructive. Constructive.

Influences?

My friends, my brother, the Internet, and letters, signs, and sights I come across in the streets. Coming across unintentionally hysterical signage is the best.

Favorite place traveled?

Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

It can range from midday to midnight. An "average" day (I actually don't have these too often) I wake up mid-morning and do a bit of work in the studio or on the computer before running errands. If I get out of the house too late I won't be able to do anything since most places close in Spain during lunchtime. It's one of the most inconvenient things about living here. Then later in the afternoon I'll get down to business in the studio until someone distracts me and drags me out at night.
