Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga

Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga approaches art as a social practice that seeks to establish dialogue in public spaces. Having been born of immigrant parents and grown-up between Nicaragua and San Francisco, an awareness of inequality and discrimination was established at an early age. The ways that inequality and power manifest themselves in our lives are consistent threads in Ricardo’s work. Themes such as immigration, discrimination, gentrification and the effects of monetisation extend from highly subjective experiences and observations into works that tactically engage others through popular metaphors while maintaining critical perspectives.
