About Ricardo

Ricardo Rodriguez Cosme, a Valencia native, studied Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage at Valencia Polytechnic University and Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples. His career journey includes working at Spain's first modern art center, the Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno, and later at Christie’s Madrid, influencing his debut painting collection.

In 2017, a milestone arrived with Rodriguez's successful solo exhibition in Milan curated by Riccardo Pozzoli. Prompted by this success, he established his art studio in Valencia, focusing solely on creating art. Since 2017, Rodriguez has participated in numerous exhibitions globally, exploring diverse series inspired by interests like classical masterpieces.

His traditional oil-on-canvas pieces aim to create visual and historical hybrids, connecting ancient myths and symbols with modern imagery. By juxtaposing art-historical significance with contemporary visuals, Rodriguez seeks to fuse Western artistic tradition with today's culture, highlighting truth, beauty, and wisdom. His preference for black and white paintings on canvas reflects a timeless style and deep sentimental connection.

“It gives me a feeling of harmony; the taste is classic. I’ve always been more interested in classic aesthetics. Not only in painting but also in sculpture, architecture, and car design. So, I find combining it and the modern world really interesting."
