About Ricardo Mbarkho
Ricardo Mbarkho's work stems from the vibrant scene of today's global digital art practices. Mbarkho manipulates different layers of significations by investigating multiple questions related to language, communication, creative industries, history of art as well as the visual representation within the sociopolitical sphere. In his recent works, he reflects on various text-based documents by transposing them into alternative interpretations where numbers and pixels embody rational and emotional aspects at once. Ricardo Mbarkho received his Diplomas from University of Paris 13, Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and Ecole Supérieure d’Etudes Cinématographiques, France, and from Institut of Fine Arts - Lebanese University, Lebanon.
