My Bio Ricardo Jabardo is an allegoric artist, a surreal humorist and a digital performer. In his art he has used a variety of techniques, including collage and digital media, to express intense symbolic messages for many years. His graphic works include scenic situations representing the drama and the contradiction of life. They are like a play in which the actors and characters have escaped in search of their roles. Jabardo is a natural impulse translator. In his work his style is continuously changing as his concepts evolve.
Jabardo’s work has spanned from the creation of corporate identities, illustrations and 3D Animations for TV-programs and commercials to animated short films exhibited in festivals in Europe and North and South America, all the way to paintings shown in galleries in and around Atlanta.
Born in Venezuela. He received his Masters in Fine Arts in 1994 from the University of California, Los Angeles.
In 1999 he moved to Georgia,USA

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Onirika is a collection of surrealistic drawings where a common theme is that of our frame of mind and our inability or unwillingness to change it. The image “Escape”, for example, shows a hand escaping from a jail to play yo-yo, while the rest of the body is still imprisoned. Similarly, we encase our minds into limited and repeated thought processes. Happy to stay imprisoned as long as we have a means of partial escape: as long as we can still play our yo-yos.
