About the Artist

Born and raised in southern Los Angeles, Ricardo Cisneros’ work deals with contemporary issues facing minorities. Each piece presents a narrative that covers a social or political topic of debate. Within each representation is a twisted and emotional journey that challenges commonly held notions of what it means to be human. Ricardo conceives each painting from an emotional experience: love, heartbreak, discrimination, poverty etc. From it, he develops a suitable environment; mood and atmosphere play a key factor in his work. In order to achieve the appropriate setting, he uses a very selective color palette and chiaroscuro. Elements of pop art also play crucial role.
