The practice of Ricardo Morales-Hernández(b.1980) consists in drawing a personal, political and cosmic story. He uses analog, digital and biological media with a main focus in extemporal drawing. Known for his paradisiac imagery evoking musical systems that reminisce the natural surroundings of the colony of Puerto Rico. Historical relations can be traced from: primitive markings, medieval marginalia, neo-expressionism and post-digital aesthetics while at the same time questioning the dominant discourses of contemporary art. He deserted studies in Media Arts, Religion and Social Sciences and been recipient of AIR–CPW- Andy Warhol Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts and Center for Image Science in Austria among others. Currently he works from San Juan, Puerto Rico.


Rocksteady project is a visual journey that uses expanded drawing, crowdsourcing, research and modelling to arrange analog, physical and historical imagery to contribute a big story. The process is a community oriented, open-end form in which traditional art forms are intertwined with digital media and narratives techniques.


Columnman with red telephone ringing.



Why Stories? Lost and Found. Because Truth matters. Matter most when is truth and you know it is. You know(,)I AM. No Napoleonic nor Chameleonic will matter now. No Carpe Diem. Why is a red telephone ringing your bells? Asking questions that keep us on earth? Why I step big steps every time? No, I am not a character, for your purposes. Supper-Tagging, with no Time in. I breath... Loaded. and Loading. I must conquer. In order to resist I embrace, I will resist. I will resist? Maybe i should change my shoes first. Yes. I change my shoes and embrace, and resist. I change my shoes, love and resist. I am the virus inside. I will survive. I will resist. I change my shoes. Life is not a meme. May I resist His charm, his candor? Salvatore always melt my hardware. He always return. He is soft as a pebble. Strong like the sun. But they are always calling my attentions. Red callings. Everyone seems to notice that I am a columnman. If I am still here When he comes, I will plug out the red cable and resist. I will resist and embrace HIM.
