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.





The struggle is real. Sharp and texturized, vertebrate and flexible. The sin is real, my weakness real. The void crisp. In the air, deception. My body as fallen, betray me. Bad humour with his stickiness, smell as hell. Alanas breathing demons throughout the chamber of the plenty. Captain Fuckinger try to unsharp my senses. Beside; my mind start counting in the inventory of success. Thanks to the rock of my salvation. The deprivation of likes sharpen my character. Shaping the diamond, turning the carbon on the press of time, saturating in the water of This/Trust. All undone. My faith undone, my skin undone, myself undone. I am a man of unclean lips. But I speak till all is done.
