The O.D. Gallery & The Rickford Institute of Creative Individualizm present Pro Photos on the Hang*Out Tip! A duo show by Ricky Powell and Tono Radvany.
Born and raised in New York, Ricky Powell took up photography in 1985. He started shooting the downtown club scene and immersed himself in the world of art and hip hop. Quitting his job to join the Raising Hell tour (Run-D.M.C, LL Cool J, Whodini and Beastie Boys) resulted in him being the photographer on Beastie Boys’ Licensed to ILL tour the following year. Since then he created a Public Access show Rappin* with The Rickster, wrote for renowned magazines, exhibited across the world, published 6 books and collaborated with big brands as he became an artist to be reckoned with.
Tono Radvany graduated in photography in ’98 and moved to NYC. Any job in photography, he did it over the last 20 years. This exhibition features his latest project The Reflectionist; images created over the past 7 years. In 2012 he began assisting Ricky Powell, subsequently created Ricky’s newest book The Individualist and slowly began managing him. Together they createdThe Rickford Institute of Individualizm.
We hope to welcome you in our gallery soon,

In this show you’ll experience a design funhouse by Frank de Ruwe aka Streetart Frankey. This exhibition was created for one reason only: to make you smile. The pieces on show are the embodiment of Frankey’s humorous and unexpected way of thinking. He transforms everyday objects into exciting works of art, always keeping you on your toes.
Opening May 24
After having made abstract work for years, Ottograph decided this year to start making art with a message. ‘Just aesthetics doesn’t do it for me anymore’, he says, ‘I want to change the world, so expect some serious shit’. In this show you’ll see a lot of selfies.
We also introduce Portuguese artist Tiago Galo to the Netherlands. Taking the dog for a walk or going to the supermarket. The banal things in life inspire Tiago. In his head the man in a flannel shirt sitting at the bus stop on a summer day, or the afro perm on the lady at the cafe mean much more than they appear.
