ABOUT RIGATONI

Determined Pasta.

My name is Rigatoni Garrido and I am a passionate fine artist. Graduated from The University of North Texas as a full ride student with two bachelors degrees in fine art. My inspirations come from bright colors, cartoons, comics, animals, and monsters. I hope to hone my skills in fine art in the future, and pursue a career in animation.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Currently, my work is about the different qualities and characteristics an adult may or may not have as they discover their place in the world. I am  working on a new series of oil paintings dealing with this concept. Each painting represents a different trait or characteristic one may find in the growth and development of an adult. As I work, I like to add some kind of silly visual as the focal point of each of my pieces. In this series, titled, “Playfully Mature”, I place cartoony animal heads on human bodies, accompanied with a thick, impasto, painterly style. Each of these animal-human hybrids have their own special narrative that talks about what trait they represent in a very specific way. I want the viewer, however, to decipher what the trait could be by themselves. The idea for the series is to create a sense of relatability between the piece and the viewer, as we all live our lives in different forms and fashions.
