Ratio is a self taught artist inspired by music, graffiti, textures and his urban surroundings.
Having grown up in the rural countryside it was when he first moved to the city that he was instantly captivated by the wall graffiti art, all the amazing torn posters advertising club nights, musicians and fashion.
His practice is all intuitive, it’s all about a feeling and it will usually begin by getting inspired by listening to music in his studio and then he will begin the process of starting a painting. This will involve building layers of colour washes, graffiti, collage of posters and plaster and concrete to create a surface language. •
Today he is based in London, his art is inspired by the search of a personal language rooted in abstraction, memories and dreams that can’t be expressed by words. A scent of optimism mixed with chaos, risk and total spontaneity gives his art a distinctive language and personality. He owes to music and dance the colours and movements he depicts in his paintings, the choreography of colour and line, the spontaneous gestures and palette all guided by a non verbal state of mind.
