English novelist Edward George Bulwer Lytton wrote: “The pen is mightier than the sword,” a phrase that inspires artist Ravi Zupa, who believes that we achieve purpose better and more effectively through communication with art than by violence with weapons. From his mixed media sculptures and assemblages to taro-like drawings and paintings inspired by Japanese, German, and Indian styles of printmaking, Zupa has become known for is the variety in his work, where the weapon has been a recurring motif. It takes centerpiece in his current show “Strike Everywhere” at Black Book Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
