Cardenas pays tribute to the ART of Great Masters as Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Wilfredo Lam. The fusion that Ricardo creates between the masters’ artistic visions and his representations are just perfect, and shows that the artist is able to find beauty in even terrible circumstances. The way he transforms salvaged building materials into stunning pieces of art is a statement to the world. “Even the worst of circumstances can be made into something worthwhile and hopeful. “
Ricardo Cárdenas is a successful artist born in México. On his artworks, Cardenas expresses his feelings and beliefs, connecting in media and technique with his career as construction engineer. He cleverly uses building materials, such as concrete and steel bars, as his artistic media for his paintings and sculptures. Cardenas creates some exquisite series of tributes to great masters. He reinterprets as a poster or street graffiti the main traits of the art from a chosen master artist, using as his canvas the cement and iron bars characteristic of his work on which he will paint and also add collage.
