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.
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.
