"Each Wednesday at noon MT time, I release a new unique
original drawing that highlights something going on in the news. It is
almost always a Bird Pot Creature, which is something that I developed,
inspired by the work of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel.
This image has to do with news and current events and immediately
relevant issues, I chose a Bird Pot Creature with an early printing
press, on the floor of his shop, is strewn about, pieces of paper with
all of the different drawings that I have so far drawn and released on
Wednesdays. One deals with sexual harassment, one is about the North
Korean threat, one is about kneeling NFL players and so on." - Ravi ZupaABOUT THE ARTIST:
’s art education started with his family and continued on at his local library. Zupa has spent the last decades studying art from cultures and movements that span history and originate from nearly all geographical regions. He considers books the best way to experience art. Being entirely self-taught, he looks for inspiration in works by German Renaissance print makers, Flemish primitives, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists, Mughal paintings, religious iconography from Europe, Asia and pre-Columbian Latin America, and revolutionary propaganda the world over. With a distaste for ironic art or the thoughtless appropriation of culture, Zupa seeks to integrate these disparate elements in search of some universal experience that explains, at least in part, what our incredibly fortunate historical position might mean.
