Rocco Ritchie, Madonna's son who was forra selling pictures that imitate Banksy and Basquiat

Since its birth, in August 2000, Rocco Ritchie (21) -The son of Madonna and the filmmaker Guy Ritchie - has provoked the interest of the press. Two decades ago, everyone wanted to know how Madonna raised her child and if she had affected her the separation of her parents. But, as it was growing, the holders changed and focused on the alleged anger that the teenager felt against the queen of pop. In fact, it is rumored that their relationship has never been "good", which would have led Rocco to move with his father, in 2015, and to block his progenitor for Instagram, in 2016. But, this 2022, Rocco has managed to get rid of Of that image of bad boy and presents before the public as a high-caliber artist. And is that the young man has been selling paintings under a curious pseudonym.

Last December, the London Gallery Tanya Baxter Contemporary announced that the English artist Rhed would present his collection in his halls. "Between 18 and January 23 we will expose Rhed's art. A young emerging artist, whose cultural background is diverse and unconventional. His childhood took place between New York and London, which has given him an eclectic and diverse art training" He reported the gallery on his website, where it was also mentioned that the first exhibition of the "mysterious painter" had been in 2018 and that he was responsible for "a new genre of DIY, with an expressionist enthusiasm and street energy." "It is not surprising that he has ventured first as a graffiti, because he certainly has touches of Basquiat and Banksy," he wrote.

Despite this, the gallery preferred to omit the true name of the artist and Rocco opted to continue silently. However, a friend of him exposed it without the intention of doing so. It is Jerrod Blandino. The founder of the Makeup Brand Too Faced, who hung a picture of the painter and one of the works of him, on December 15. And although not many noted that Rhed and Rocco were the same person, Page Six tied Cabos and revealed the identity of Ritchie a couple of days later. As a result, and according to means like Tatler, until December 17 RHED sold pictures for 28,000 euros. However, after knowing the name of him, the works of him would have increased considerably of price.

Even so, the criticism has not been kind with Rhed. It is more, means like The Guardian have loaded against the artist and have assured that his talent is, rather, scarce. "His paintings of him are the awkward attempts at a teenageless, these stains are the works of an amateur who imitates Picasso or Modigliani and could have been carried out by millions of young people," he said, "a few days ago - the expert Jonathan Jones . Although the acquaintance of him do not think the same thing and some point out that no one should judge Rocco in the Genesis of the trajectory of him. One that he began when he accepted the art program of the prestigious central Sant Martins, in 2019. Three years after launching his career as a model.

In 2016 - the same year in which he was arrested by possession of Marijuana, "Rocco Ritchie began to collaborate with various brands. Among them, Adidas, who signed him with the excuse that "represented the youthful spirit of him" of him. Subsequently, the Celeb was allowed to be seen in numerous parades and in 2021 he became an editorial model, after posing for The Rake. "Rocco Ritchie shows that elegant clothing is not wasted in young people. Rocco and his friends convey a message from Union through his refined style and announce a countercultural movement," said the magazine in the same week that Madonna turned 63. An important date that the star celebrated with her son, with whom she - from two winters - she is at peace.
