Huston Ripley

Born in 1961 - United States


Huston Ripley was born in the United States in 1961. For many years -- mostly in cafés, bars and restaurants -- he drew on napkins, which were readily available and provided the tactile surface he liked. Over time the drawings have continued to evolve through to his current work.

He has developed a personal idiom depicting such themes as fertility, growth and death that suggests various iconographies and conveys the spirit or idea of transcendence.

Creating these works has enabled him to express symbolically Eros, terror, peace, and other aspects of humanity by using universal shapes and structures revealed through the meditative process of drawing.
