Bold Journey Magazine: Meet Ricardo Lowenberg

We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Ricardo Lowenberg a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.

Ricardo, so good to have you with us today. We’ve always been impressed with folks who have a very clear sense of purpose and so maybe we can jump right in and talk about how you found your purpose?

I was born in Mexico City in 1960, I was so fortunate to be exposed to fine art and classical music and the creative experience from my early childhood and throughout my adolescence, thus instilling in me an almost innate sense of beauty and aesthetics; significantly nurtured by my parents. My father, a noted physician, was also a very talented painter. His advice to me when I was a young Artist was ” paint or sculpt as long as it’s enjoyable to you, and always do it for yourself. Make it enjoyable, and if it stops been enjoyable, is not worth it. Try to push yourself always in different directions, so you are never comfortable with a “recipe” for painting or sculpting: ALL of your artwork has to have a deeper meaning, a higher purpose. That truly is artistic creation.” I have lived by that advice; those words, and it has given me the purpose to create throughout my life and my career. I began sculpting classes from the age of five and art school at a hacienda that also housed an adjoining orphanage, an experience that left an indelible mark on my process and my psyche.

Thanks for sharing that. So, before we get any further into our conversation, can you tell our readers a bit about yourself and what you’re working on?

I am a Painter & Sculptor; called to the artistic process by an innate drive to express the emotions and essence of the human condition. I work in and between several mediums, I paint both abstract and figurative works, and all of these works transcend paint to become sculptures: I sculpt voluminous forms that explore the trajectory of emotions beginning with their interiority and culminate with their visual expression.
