Ric Santesteban was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1981. From a very young age, he has explored his creative needs by participating in art courses and workshops. He graduated from the Universidad Nacional de las Artes, where he studied a teaching program in visual arts oriented to painting. Throughout his career, he has shown his work in various galleries, fairs, and collective exhibitions. Since 2019, he has dedicated himself exclusively to developing his work as a visual artist and teaching the technique of painting.
Since the beginning of his career, more than 12 years ago, Santesteban has built his artistic work combining the expressive possibilities offered by acrylic painting with his deep philosophical thoughts on the human condition. His work, which is torn between figuration and abstraction, explores images and concepts related to meditation, internalization, essence, spirit, soul, mind, psyche, emotions, memory, faith, creation, and freedom.
