An Interview with Ravi Zupa

Ravi Zupa has been a household name in the Denver arts community for some time, a reputation that will soon hopefully apply on a larger scale, with his first solo show overseas. Taking place at Outsiders the show is entitled “Nothing Changes Needs” and will feature drawings and paintings that echo Europe’s dark ages, a layering method that showcases Japanese, German, and Indian styles of printmaking, and hints of more modern revolution. Throughout all of which, Ravi creates a distinctive world blending meditative practice and angry, raw reprisal. I sat down with Mr Zupa, via internet and then in his studio, to ask him some questions. – Max Kauffman
