4Me4You Features - “HYPERTEEN”.


4me4you visits Stolen Space Gallery, which featured the artist Ricardo Cavolo - “HYPERTEEN”.


Ricardo Cavolo’s eclectic style is based on relationships with folk art, traditional and modern tattoo culture, European religious imagery, tribal arts, and comics and cartoons.

Ricardo focuses on portraiture, to visual describe various stories, characters and their experiences across time, using symbolism to connect to a modern and playful audience while also referencing historical and religious illustrations.

Hyperteen’ is a celebration of teenagers and the energy they possess, a force so strong that it can easily move mountains.

This rare power only occurs during the ephemeral years of adolescence, a strange period when the body and mind are transitioning into the realm of adulthood.

Teens are portrayed as heroes and heroines fighting their way into a world where they are desperately needed, where their unique energy can be harnessed, but are ultimately unwelcome.
