Ricardo Useche

I was born and raised in the Venezuelan Andes mountains but now I’m living in the Mediterranean island of Mallorca.

Since a was a kid I used to carry around my backpack with a notebook, pencils and a set of watercolors. I have always been fascinated with my environment this is why I often use my art to describe my feelings, dreams and concerns.

I have always been inspired by pop culture, cinema, classic graphic novels. My illustrations are meant to make us think by using a style almost childlike that seek to call the viewer’s conscience.

The colours that I use evoke states of mind, smells, and personal memories, as well as other people’s. My work includes illustrations, postcards, posters, commissions, children’s books, and collaborations with magazines and publishers
