Beautiful Blurring Lines Between Human Nature

Artist Rico Blanco combines his two passions—painting and illustration—into these magnificent abstract-like pieces. The main focus of each painting, often building on a relationship between human and animal, creates a scene that evokes different meanings and narratives. Experiencing each piece is like trying to hold on to a brief flash of memory right before it disintegrates into the swell of colorful paint strokes.

The conflict between a sense of completion and the fragmented narrative is intentional. Blanco says, “The picture is built up in layers and I choose when and where to add detail and where to leave areas more sparse. I want to show the progression of the painting. Which leaves you with the challenge of when is the painting finished?” In my opinion, the paintings are fantastic!
