Ricky is well known for his large-scale murals that can be seen in cities all over the world, from Cape Town to Istanbul and Kathmandu. His intention with his murals is to create artwork that has meaning to the community who will live with the mural and to represent a universal idea that everyone can identify with and be inspired by. Ricky has gained the attention of and received commissions from private collectors and international organizations like WWF, Google, Doctors Without Borders, and more. Having painted under the pseudonym Freddy Sam (his two grandfathers names combined) since 2010, he has now chosen to work under his real name. He was born in Johannesburg and now works and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.
