Biography / Ricky Lee Gordon

Ricky Lee Gordon is a self-taught Cape Town based artist, born in Johannesburg South Africa in 1984. He is best known for his vast-scale murals that can be seen in all over the world. Living by the law of nature his murals explore this area bringing light to the surroundings he paints. Ricky Lee Gordon has collaborated with URBAN NATION by contributing his works on a One Wall project in 2017.

Ricky Lee Gordon moved to LA in 2016 to study classical painting. It was after 2010 that he started using his real name; before he would paint under the pseudonym Freddy Sam (combination of his two grandfathers’ names). Since 2014 he devote himself to painting completely and had his first solo exhibition in 2015. It might be the place where he draws his inspiration from, his experience in meditation and Buddhist Dharma, or just the fact that he found his life purpose but his murals are the perfect combination of the nature of non-duality and the interconnection of things. He always tries to focus on the relevant social issues and the universal truth, thus his aim is to make people connect to his artwork. His style can be upfront, direct or full of moral. The combination of poems and images sums up perfection on a wall as his message.
