Ricky Hunt lives and paints in Los Angeles. A brief period of drug addiction in the 1980's led to a term of incarceration for the artist. This in turn led to the discovery of his artistic talent and personal transformation through the love of art.
Hunt began to teach himself to draw in 1995. Nine months later Tiger Woods' father Earl, commissioned a pastel portrait which he described as "The best portrait of Tiger ever painted". From this foundation grounded in traditional drawing skills Hunt's work transformed into his contemporary painting approach seen today.
Ricky Hunt's artworks have been collected throughout the US and were exhibited at a major international art fair in New York in the fall 2016.
