Crazy, passionate, entrepreneur artist. Hi my name is Ricardo, but call me Riky please. I come from a little town in the middle of the world called Quito. Since I was a kid I remember that I always stop while I was walking and enjoy the details, which the nature and architecture bring us and surround us. I can't just watch everything like normal people do, I have to explore, observe and appreciate the detail. And because of this, all my designs, photography and advertising campaigns come from the same detail oriented background. I have studied Architecture for 3 years then I changed my mayor for Advertising and a minor in Graphic Design. Because my passion for the Advertising and graphic design I decided to take my education to the next level and study a masters degree in the capital of Advertising US. So I moved here, (Fort Lauderdale) in 2006, since there I took English classes in NOVA University in order to improve the language and continue my education. Three years after I have applied for the Art Institute, I got approved and I graduated there with honors in 2012.
All these artistic backgrounds, my hobby (photography) and my best friend (Adobe Photoshop), have guided me to do what I love the most: visual art photography, (a mix of surreal world, funny, elegant, sophisticated, ambitious, comic, funky, silver, detail oriented art). So if you like what I just said take a look at my pictures and like them in FB as Contempor Ad. or go to my website ContemporAd.com.
Thank you for reading.
