    Riccardo Russomanno

    Ciao! I am a visual artist, and my art is colorful, with a twist for kindness and fragility.

    Drawing on photographs is a form of art that mixes fantasy and reality. The illustrations on top of the photo add extra layers of interpretation to a picture and transform it into something funny, colorful, and full of storytelling. Shapes, lines, objects, new clothes, accessories, lettering, words, sentences are some of the elements that can make your image stand out from the ordinary.

      Your creative side

      Every one of us has a hidden creative side. My classes are designed to reconnect you with your spontaneous and artistic side.


      Make it digital
