A sample of Ricardo Vela's body of work.
"Ricardo Vela's most recent artistic explorations are expressed in acrylic on canvas. He works in an emotional expressionistic style, with rich colors, broad, gestural brushstrokes, and vigorous applications of paint that combine into powerful and evocative images that absolutely captivate the viewer's eye."
Paradigm Arts Group, 2009
Ricardo Vela is a contemporary multimedia artist who is also an Emmy-winning news anchor, television producer, and journalist. Vela began taking photographs when he was just 8 years old, and has continued to follow that passion ever since. He has a gifted eye for composition, and his journalistic background serves him well, in the context that many of his photos, drawings and paintings have a distinctly allegorical sense to them.
