Welcome to the site of
Master of Curvismo™!
Bienvenidos to the homesite of the Dali of the Desert, Ricardo Chávez-Méndez, a prolific artist who decided at the age of fourteen to dedicate his entire life to a career in art. Ricardo has worked tenaciously toward that goal for the last 40 years, developing into the Master of Curvismo™ and one of the finest artists in his genre.
Ricardo is truly an extraordinary artist. He is not only the master artist of the style he introduced to New Mexico known as "Curvismo™" or curvism™ but of technique, color and composition, leaving a trail of awe inspiring art for the art lover, collector and critic alike. The range of mediums is just as impressive, working in acrylics, oils, alkyds, color pencil, watercolor, pastel, fiber art and mixed media, including clay sculpture. He is co-owner of ORO Fine Art Gallery, the hidden treasure of Albuquerque, New Mexico where he teaches privately as well as group instruction.
