Artist of the moment……..Street Artist Ricardo AKN

 

Ricardo AKN is a street artist hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil born in the year 1979. In addition to painting large murals the artist works as an illustrator and also with plastics.

 

In this clip we view a time lapse of Ricardo AKN at work on a piece in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2006:

The artist and the Pepsi company teamed up for this series of works featuring the best football/ soccer players in the world. In this clip we take a closer look at this series of art from Rikardo AKN:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

I enjoy the style of this Brazilian artist. Though people in the art world know about the Pandolpho Twins, Os Gemeos  from Brazil, other artists such as Ricardo AKN do a great job depicting the figure in a modernist style. The artist has been very successful as a commercial artist working with companies including Pepsi, Ellus, and Nike.
