Ricardo Cárdenas (b. Medellín, Colombia, 1966).
His interest in art started at a very early age when he was only 5 years old. He studied arts at ‘Instituto de Bellas Artes’ in Medellín. Cardenas is also a Civil Engineer and holds Master’s Degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Massachusetts. While his engineering background has been fundamental for the development of his work, his inspiration is nature which he interprets with abstract elements and forms. He has participated in multiple collective and solo exhibitions both locally and internationally.
