Ricardo Celma tells stories. He actually paints pictures in pictures.
Coming from the old school, his details of the human body are so real that is hard to believe that it is a painting. But its much more impressive when the canvas are over 2m. The clothes over the characters are so impressive that you want to touch them. Erotism and pleasure comes out and fill the air when you are in front of one of his paintings. Evoking the Great masters, you can see a reminiscence of Classical painting in his artwork as backgrounds or hints of stories and myths. I truly admire his work, its absolutely impressive.
This talented Argentine painter has been around the world doing exhibitions in Japan, Holland, Polynesia and Mexico. He is having a solo exhibition at Buenos Aires in Galeria Zurbaran on from May 28th to June 30th 2012.
He was designated curator to represent Argentina in the exhibition of Argentinian figuration in Brasilia, which is going to be over Brasil for the next few years.
