Ravi Zupa

Artist Ravi Zupa considers books the best way to experience art.

He has spent decades studying books about the art, mythology, religion, and history of cultures from across geography and time.

Entirely self-taught, Zupa looks to works by German Renaissance printmakers, Flemish primitives, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists, and Mughal painters for inspiration.

He also frequently incorporates religious iconography from Europe, Asia, and Pre-Columbian Latin America with revolutionary propaganda from around the world.
