Ricardo Cavolo

10 May 2015

East London Comics and Arts Festival (ELCAF) presents Ricardo Cavolo’s Emblema at NOW Gallery’s new Urban Village Fete.

Using the history of Greenwich Peninsula as his starting point, Cavolo is producing a series of vivid flags which will be painted in NOW Gallery the week leading up to the fete. Each flag hints at the changing narrative of this distinct London borough.

Ricardo Cavolo is a Spanish painter and illustrator currently based in Brighton. His vibrant and bold creations are inspired by folk art, tattoos and people he sees on the street, resulting in a colourfully unique style.

Make your own flag in a workshop run by the artist himself and listen to a DJ set based around Cavolo’s recent Nobrow publication, 101 Artists To Listen To Before You Die, both of which will run alongside the installation throughout the day of the fete.
