About Us

RIO

Versatile and current artist, painter RIO exudes an explosive will to live and which he propels fervently on his works as surprising as intriguing. A touch of mystery hovers over each of his creations. Whether in its collections of faces without eyes, stained crystal skulls or fish with transparency, to name only these, you will always find a balance in colors and textures.

Rio is constantly renewing himself by creating new collections still hovering around its enigmatic theme, female faces without eyes. A real tribute to the inspirational women who marked his childhood.

Striving every year to create a breathtaking show around his newest concepts, he presents us art openings and exhibits more colorful and impressive one than the other. Thus customers and guests are placed in the heart of a universe closer to the imagination of the artist.

 

The works are created with oil paint sometimes incorporating other mediums such as centenarian encyclopedia’s pages, crystals, stones, rivets and gold leaf. Always in search of new techniques, the artist will surprise you as time goes by.

Each of the materials adds a symbolic dimension, creating more than a simple aesthetic work.

While remaining true to his artistic approach, Rio also offers custom work on demand based on your preference.
