Ricardo Goldman
Venezuelan (born in Argentina, 1953), who lives in the country since age 6, takes his first drawing classes at 8. In 1971 he finishes High School at Colegio Moral y Luces, Herzl Bialik. In 1973 resides in New York, attending Columbia University and then the New York Institute of Advertising. Returns to Caracas, and in 1979 he completes his degree at the Instituto de Diseño Fundación Neumann, where he obtains his definitive artistic formation under the tutelage of artists of distinguished trajectories. It’s there where, besides being nurtured by the purely academic experiences, he understands that the path offered by the Abstraction, Geometry, and the Bauhaus Movement will importantly dictate how he expresses himself.

At the end of this period he participates in the restoration of wood carvings and colonial oil paintings that belong to the Archbishop Palace in Caracas, among other private and government projects both in Venezuela and overseas. He develops drawing as a discipline in itself, along with other expression forms like etching, serigraphy, or the construction of pieces in wood, metals, and synthetic resins. Painting and sculpture play now a preponderant role.

Since 1978 his works have been exhibited in private galleries, museums and institutions like:
Galería Parenthesis, Venezuela Estudio Arte 8, Venezuela Latin Art Gallery, Czech Republic Canal Gallery, Panama Galería Gsiete, Venezuela Aldo Castillo Contemporary, US Galería Blasini, Venezuela Arte Diners Gallery, Colombia Galería D´Museo, Venezuela Galería Durban, Venezuela Centro de Arte Daniel Suárez, Venezuela Estudio Actual, Venezuela Forma Gallery, Argentina Galería Felix, Venezuela Galería Freites, Venezuela Grupo Lí, Venezuela Galería El Muro, Venezuela Galería Minotauro, Venezuela Galería Mirarte, Venezuela Qbix Gallery, US Sala Mendoza, Venezuela Galería Templarios, Venezuela Museum of Modern Art, Guatemala Maldonado Museum of American Art, Uruguay Museum of Art Alejandro Otero, Venezuela Sephardic Museum of Caracas Morris E Curiel Caracas Museum of Contemporary Art Sofía Imber, Venezuela Museum of Barquisimeto, Venezuela Carlos Cruz Diez Museum of la Estampa and Design, Venezuela Art Center of Fine Arts of Maracaibo, Venezuela National Gallery, Venezuela Unopiu, Milan, Italy Industrial Bank of Venezuela Foundation Corporación Andina de Fomento Gallery, Venezuela Central Bank of Venezuela National Bank of Commerce Gallery, US Union Israelita de Caracas, Venezuela Museum Julio Teodoro Arze, Venezuela University of Oriente, Venezuela Zulia University, Venezuela State Department of Foreign Affairs, Venezuela Associated Graphic Artist Atelier, Venezuela Pratt Graphics Center, US Venezuelan Cultural Center, Colombia Hebraica Cultural Center, Venezuela Centre D´Art Contemporani, Spain Center Binianei Hauma, Israel Cultural Center Eladio Alemán Sucre, Venezuela Corp Group Foundation, Venezuela Alianza Francesa, Venezuela.

His production has been enriched by other cultural influences, like Philosophy (L.R. Hubbard), and Music (renaissance lute, esthetic appreciation and socio cultural studies) among other sources.
Besides the several awards and recognitions he received, his work is being represented at the Associated Graphic Artist Atelier (TAGA) in Venezuela, Museum Fuji of Japan, Caracas Museum of Contemporary Art Sofia Imber (MACCSI) in Venezuela, National Art Gallery (GAN) of Venezuela, Museum of Fine Arts (MBA) of Venezuela, Caracas Sephardic Museum of Caracas Morris E Curiel, National Library of Venezuela, Central University of Venezuela (inscribed in the World Heritage List of UNESCO thanks to its art pieces). For this Institution he designed a stained glass for the School of Humanities and Education, initiating then a series of monumental projects with pieces up to forty five square meters. His work can also be seen in private collections in America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
