Ricardo, Owner of Costa RicART

My name is Ricardo Solis. I'm a Costa Rican mixed media artist and graphic designer currently living in Pittsburgh, PA.

I started Costa RicArt in 2011 with the idea to use mainly reclaimed materials to create my art. Part of my inspiration comes from biodiversity and the goal to reduce my environmental footprint.

 

Although, I'm the main person behind this, my wife Alina and my dogs Rufio and Rebel give me a lot of help and moral support... In that specific order!
