AuGUST ARTIST: Ricardo G Vargas Colon

Ricardo G Vargas Colon

Born in Cayey, Puerto Rico in . Graduated from High school in 2008 and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2011. Currently a Drill Sergeant in Ft Jackson,SC

I always had the hand to express myself through art. My inspiration as a young teen comes from the “taboo art” categorized as “Graffiti”. The aggressiveness of graffiti, the colors and it’s lack of rules are just an open window for possibilities. 

Music had a big part in my upbringing as I relate music with art as pure raw creation. Jungle music, Drum and Bass and Jazz & Bossanova are my main choices for my “mantra” while I work. Music also forms part of my inspiration and to fit it to my performance. 

I consider my work a bit apart from others since I don’t use common techniques or specific rules. I don’t distinguish my work under any particular category and use little or no planning most of the time. 

FREE Wine Tasting

Every month, ART (uncorked) is paired with a completely FREE wine tasting. While you sample the wine, there is a rep on hand to tell you everything you need to know about the wine. 

*must be 21+ to participate in the tasting
