Ricky “Rico” Heeraman was born in 1991 in New York City and later moved to Paterson in New Jersey. He started spray painting at an early age influenced by his surroundings and upbringing in the Bronx. His canvases are vibrant and filled with layers of symbols and cultural references that culminate into an emotion-filled story. The present lot is a great example of his fascinating compositions that include a psychedelic visual language. Entirely self taught, the artist is known for street-art stylistic elements combined with an array of mixed media resulting in entirely unique and eccentric works. He has work with various charities including a collaboration with the New York Stock exchange to raise money for disabled children. His works have been exhibited at various locations including SPECTRUM Miami in 2019, the Jue Lan Club in New York, Dacia Gallery in New York, and Clerestory Fine Art in Montclair.
