Debatable Motivations Encourage the Adventures of Biking Sloths and Raging Cats in Ravi Zupa’s Illustrations — Colossal
A raccoon on a motorbike laments over being a poser, a sloth finds itself exhilerated after a motorbike experience, and a raging cat screams that, regardless of its snarling tooth, it’s not indignant. The self-conscious, awkward, and excitable creatures are the newest additions to Ravi Zupa’s rising solid of characters, which observe earlier illustrations that includes a pack of self-deprecating canines and a herd of disorderly, drunken cats.
Zupa tells Colossal that he’s spent the previous couple of months using his bike close to his residence in Commerce Metropolis, Colorado, every morning—rain, snow, or sunshine—and this dedication has translated to his work. Lots of his current prints and greeting playing cards characteristic animals mid-cycle as they ponder their tv habits and whether or not their helmet actually does make them look corny.
Presently, Zupa is making ready for a solo present opening in June at Subliminal Initiatives in Los Angeles. His work will even be included in a gaggle exhibition opening in July at Harman Initiatives in New York Metropolis. Store prints and greeting playing cards that includes the illustrations proven right here on his web site.
