Born 4 January 1977

Ricardo Nieuwoudt grew up im Kraaifontein. He moved to a Cape Flats  town called Delft, where he went to high school.

Ricardo has attended various art related workshops in Cape Town, including a 2 week painting workshop at the Castle of Goodhope, the end rusult being a collabaration of artists to produce a large work. He also attended a 2 week course at C.A.P

"My art focus and interest were stimulated throughout my school years, especialy due to my reading of graphic novels and comics, this has also awakened my imagination.

What drew my attention the most was the artist's ability to draw expressions and movement of the charactors. Looking at these images was to me a visual feast, I would scan these graphics very carefully in order to redraw and paint these images, this again stimulated  my  imagination.

My influence are the renaissance time period and ancient art effects, I also admire the works of great artists such as da Vinci, Monet, Renoir, Andy Warhol and South African painter John Meyer, as well as Willie Bester.

My style of paint varies from expressionistic to realistic and surrealistic." -
