Exploring color in the darkness, inspired by the Italian and Dutch renaissance. He brings hints of the fauna of his native South American vibrant and passionate colors. Bringing them into this obscure space he hopes to ignite the imagination of the world that surrounds his subjects in the pictures. Like a dream within the landscapes of classical renaissance paintings.

The artist uses a vivid contrast of color to add an extra dimension in the movement and shadows of each piece. Almost giving a glimpse, outside of the nostalgia, of his -black & whites- and sepias. Evoking a sense of freedom and liberation.

_________________________
Ricky Cohete was born in a coastal city in Ecuador, but mainly, grew up in Miami. Florida’s light was what drew him in to explore photography. The harsh lights and shadows were easy to encounter in this warm weather. The crisp and refined effect of this type of lighting conditions became a necessity to avoid studio settings. Self-taught; while photographing the ballet dancers in the city of Miami he started dedicating more time to the male form. Working with them outside of their secure space (rehearsal studio) and bringing them outside, on the sand or water, creating a dynamic that kept birthing new compositions. Inspired by the mythology in tarot culture and astrology he has incorporated certain of those elements throughout his oeuvre.
Lately, he has self-published a photography book that included: short poems and sketches titled “Blanco”
