Alcides Rivas is a Venezuelan-born, New York City-based contemporary artist.
Alcides Rivas Untitled 2018
Untitled 2018 presents new mixed-media paintings inspired by childhood memories of the artist’s grandparent’s coffee farm in the mountains. Embroideries pay homage to the artist’s mother and grandmother who were both seamstresses.
[Editor’s Note:] Venezuela should be one of the richest countries in the Americas. Today it is a failed state that refuses help from the outside. All we have left is our memories. God bless Venezuela.
