IT’S A LIVING is not just a statement but it is also a life philosophy for Ricardo Gonzalez, a designer, and artist from Durango México, currently living in Brooklyn. His signature script style can be easily recognized from large scale murals to commercial work for some of the biggest brands, to a simple sticker in the streets. The ambiguity in his typographical messages continually creates dialogue between viewer and artwork.
