In his mystical objects, his gothic references,
his allegorical language, death finds exorcism,
memory recalls the unconscious, and nature
finds its zero point. Rikyboy dialogues with
his Ghost Notes, his ghosts of existence.

What are the modern divinities? Rikyboy, born in 1996, uses atavistic questions and images in an attempt to excavate the spiritual echo and bring it back to the contemporary.
While deepening his sculptural, painterly, and chalcographic practices, turning to intervention and urban militancy, and specializing in the study of graphics, Rikyboy cultivates a visionary obsession with the intangible, the ancestral, the cult of the sacred and the profane.
His aesthetic is dark, nostalgic, gothic. His symbols are everyday details charged with abysmal meanings: Keys and crossbows, feathers and chalices, abstractly designed objects that lie between black and white.
Rikyboy’s visual language is profound and ascetic. An ode to life in the resurrection they find on the wall, on the canvas, and on digital material. A deadly dream in the exhalation of their last breath, which dies out among the aged chrome.
