Ricardo Passaporte’s work draws attention to the hand-drawn, homespun nature of their creation by referencing Outsider Art and engaging with the repetitiveness and impulsivity of graffiti. The artist explores the symbolic nature of found images and uses this material as inspiration to inform his practice. Passaporte takes interest in and raises questions around the nature of making art, as well as the dichotomies between the mass-produced and the uniquely singular art object.
