Interview with Max ‘RIPO’ Rippon in NY Times’ T Magazine

The culture section of the New York TimesT Magazine featured an interview with artist RIPO a few months back, following his exhibition of Signs, Fines & Cheap Wines at White Walls. Writer and artist iO Tillet Wright reflects on RIPO’s contribution to contemporary art,  ”A street artist who borrows from graffiti is nothing new, but one that elevates both mediums with his devoted, ever-developing craftsmanship is a rarity. For close to a decade, Max Rippon has been exploring the intersection of classic calligraphy, hand-painted signage and graffiti in his public artworks. In the spirit of Steve Powers (ESPO), Rippon (who goes by “Ripo”) has injected imagery into wordplay, and words into visual landscapes that he offers up as a gift to every city he visits in the form of large-scale murals.”

Check out the full article where RIPO chronicles his latest projects and travels, which surprisingly even included the logo design for a porn star. Currently RIPO is preparing for his upcoming solo show at the White Walls’ Project Space which opens on March 6, 2013 in conjunction with White Walls and Shooting Gallery‘s 10 Year Anniversary Group Show.
