About the artist:

Riccardo Raul Papavero inherits from his mother, an established artist, the interest in art in all its forms.
As an enthusiast and expert in music, cinema, and art, Papavero reinterprets the multi-material collage with personality and incessant experimentalism.

The incessant research of materials and the continuous revolution of artistic concepts lead him to create highly characterized works.
