Following his partnership with Raf Simons on a successful capsule collection for men, Sterling Ruby recently showed his “VIVIDS” exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong. The vibrant array of pink and red spray-painted canvases draw inspiration from the beautiful sunsets of Southern California. “I live in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and my studio is in downtown Los Angeles. My daily routine of driving back and forth is always a contemplative time. On these drives, I often witness extremely vivid and colorful sunrises and sunsets, yielding horizon lines that transform the urban sprawl into a meditative celestial plane,” says the American artist.
Unfortunately, “VIVIDS” closed its doors today, but have a look at the above photos and share your thoughts below.
