What people writes about him...
Riccardo Perrone is a painter surrounded by an air of mystery which allows him to hide in himself all his knowledge, his experience and his creativity.
Being him a reserved, introvert and quiet person, he manages to communicate only through his hands, a reflection of his irrepressible passion for painting. He looks after his canvas with the care of a father to his son, painting and "polluting" the canvas with various painting techniques, skills which only belong to the great masters.
He lets the rawest feelings and the deepest concepts flow through his colours and his refinement: abstract visions that will speak to you!
