Ricardo do Rosario

Born in Florianópolis, Brazil, Ricardo do Rosario grew up drawing objects that he found around. He loves oil painting using the alla prima style. His work ranges from abstract painting to digital art and from impressionism to contemporary. His inspirations are Manet, Monet, Richard Schmid, and graffiti artists as well.

Transformation, a journey to liberty - Oil on canvas 67 x 70 cm

Ricardo do Rosário used to draw collages and cartoons at school, admired by his mates. With difficulties to access a paid university, he decided to take a Bacharelate in Computer Science. From then until early 2020, he spent all his efforts in that area but was always thinking about art, drawing and painting. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Ricardo took an oil painting course at Panorama Escola de Artes and has since not stopped painting.
