Entirely self-taught, Zupa looks to works by German Renaissance printmakers, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists and Mughal era painters for inspiration. Ravi uses a different approach in his experience with art, by using books. He has spent decades studying books on mythology, religion and cultures across the globe, alongside many more different subject matters. Ravi also involves religious iconography from Pre-Columbian Latin America, Europe and Asia by using rebellious propaganda.
