A teacher and artist who loves nature and has an experimental mindset full of experiences to draw on. After moving to India with his wife Deborah, also a teacher but a theatre teacher, his art has been influenced by the Hindu religion. A lover of travel and discoveries, he implemented his new knowledge to experiment with different artistic techniques. Although oil painting is his favourite, Riccardo likes to mix classic oil painting techniques with new digital technologies, experimenting with new painting styles.
"Painting is a way of looking at the world through the eyes of colour. Where an ordinary person sees only a shade of colour, the artist sees a whole palette of colours."
"Teaching art for me is a way to bring out not only the innermost emotions but a way to spread beauty and appreciate the world with different eyes. [...] Painting is a metaphysical journey to discover the essence of things."
