The Emotions of R. Ricieri Exhibition

The Emotions of R. Ricieri ExhibitionTuesday, December 1, 6:30pm-9pm - Ricieri Art Studio, 325 NE 59th Terrace, Miami

Kicking-off the Miami Art Week, Ricieri Art Studio presents a red carpet night for a unique exhibition featuring the Italian-Brazilian Artist Roberto Ricieri on December 1. The Emotions of R. Ricieri will display over 100 works by the artist, including his highly regarded Infinity Series of paintings, as well as sculptures and drawings. Attendees will also enjoy a hardcover book with five of his collections, a documentary movie, his own testimony about his time in captivity and how it led to him becoming an artist.

Born in 1959 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Ricieri has created more than 1,000 paintings, using acrylic on canvas, along drawing with pencil and carbon. He discovered his style and way of thinking about art in prison, which affected his work with real life inspiration and deep emotion. Admired by many, Ricieri never attended art school. As an entrepreneur, he often traveled to Europe and North America where he spent much of his time observing the masters of art in museums around the world.

The Infinity Collections by R. Ricieri are a collaboration between the Tara Art Collection Sylvia White Gallery of Los Angeles California and the Noel Santiesteban. This exhibition beautifully combines his innovative work with fascinating aspects of his life in captivity. The 130-page book titled “Ricieri: The Art Born from Captivity” will be released at the event for purchase. The publication includes 80 full-color paintings by the artist.
