Ricardo Benavides is a local artist who earned his Master of Fine Art degree in 2014 from the University of Texas – Pan American. He uses painting, digital photography, and ceramics to explore minimalism and construction inspired by the sophisticated and globalized culture of Mexico. In this mixed-media exhibit, Benavides translates complex societal constructs into minimalistic layers and shapes of color.
