Artisan: Ricardo Siccuro
Born in Rio de Janeiro on August 5, 1956, artist Ricardo Siccuro's life was disrupted when at the age of 15 he was hit by a car. Even though he didn't suffer great physical injuries, he seemed to have suffered emotionally and became depressed - he did not want to leave his house. It was then that he began to paint surreal images with the materials at hand: an ordinary pencil and paper.
Less than two months later he was exhibiting his work at the XXII Salão Nacional de Arte Moderna alongside renowned Brazilian. Motivated by the experience, Ricardo began to use better quality materials until he eventually mastered the work in oils. Ricardo's paintings have been exhibited in Brazil as well as in the United States, France, Italy, Spain, England, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina, Ecuador and other countries around the world.
He tells us, "Modern man has become used to making sense of a life at times riddled with absurdities, when logic and rationale simply do not apply. My work is made of elements disassociated from their everyday function, with the purpose of awakening the viewer's curiosity and imagination. They are images filled with symbolic meaning, repeated in different series, each embracing its own theme."
