A Conversation with Ricder Ricardo: An LLC/FSCJ Gallery Event

A Conversation with Ricder Ricardo: An LLC/FSCJ Gallery Event Online

Cuban-born artist Ricder Ricardo uses paint and mixed media to narrate stories of survival, acceptance, tolerance and struggles to overcome personal obstacles. “As a young gay Cuban-American man I never dreamt that becoming an artist would be a possibility for me; growing up in Cuba, surrounded by poverty and lacking freedom of expression, art became the only thing that gave me fuel to dream of a better future. My work has given me the tools to find my voice and to let it be heard, by creating pieces that highlight my identity as both a Cuban immigrant and a gay man living in the United States.”

Join us for a virtual walkthrough of his exhibit and a conversation with the artist about his painting series Encounter, which addresses the highs and lows of Ricardo’s relationship with his husband, takes into consideration their divergent cultural heritage, marriage and the challenges of both in the current political climate.
