Artist Ronny Quevedo grew up in the Bronx in New York, after his parents moved their from Ecuador. His father was a professional soccer player, so the fact that he draws inspiration in his work from sports is not surprising. In a Youtube video Ronny shares that 'the competitive nature of sports is one of the inspirations for his artworks.'
One of the most used spaces in his works are de-constructed gymnasium floors. He breaks them down 'in order to recreate or reconsider limitations and rules, and the ideas of play.' He feels mapping these spaces of play is a way to consider how you can adjust the games and structures you live in to your own terms.
The History of Rules and Measurements #2 is his favourite, but we like all his collage-like works! A truly new way to look at gymnasia and the space of play!
