Straight from the far shores of South Africa, Ricky Lee Gordon was also in Honolulu for the excellent Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2016.
Painting under intense heat in the district of Kaka’Ako, Freddy Sam unveiled a beautiful piece entitled “Ocean Poet”.
This piece is part of a series of murals exploring interconnectedness and non duality. The wave knows it is the ocean and the ocean knows it is the wave.
Ricky is a self-taught artist born in Johannesburg in 1984 and now working and living in Cape Town South Africa. He is well known for his large-scale murals that can be seen in cities all over the world, from Cape Town to Istanbul and Kathmandu.
Having painted under the pseudonym Freddy Sam (his two grandfathers names combined) since 2010, he has now chosen to work under his real name.
