Artist Spotlight: Fiesta de Reyes’ RD “Randy” Riccoboni

February 7, 2011

Master Artist, and Best-Selling author RD “Randy” Riccoboni

“What drives and inspires me is a passion for forward thinking. I pick up on the positive and beautiful vibrations of color, contrast, perspective and spirit that surround our daily lives and create art with a mission that is trail blazing for others artists and non-artists. I hope my art work will trigger inspiration and happiness in you to create and make the world a better place starting right in our own neighborhoods whether you are the creator, the appreciator or both.”

Known as The California Artist who paints spectacular landmarks boldly painted with exciting impressionistic style in happy colors are his trademark, and the results of his career have been astounding. RD Riccoboni, Randy to his friends, is an innovative self-taught artist who began painting at age four when he got into his mothers paint-by-numbers. The artist credits encouragement by family and teachers for his drive and inspiration that has led the way to his success as a best-selling author, speaker and inspirational visionary. In 2007, he moved his popular Beacon Artworks Gallery into the beautiful Fiesta de Reyes in Old Town’s San Diego State Historic Park.

His paintings on canvas and paper depict travels, places of local interest including

San Diego landmarks and everyday life experiences. RD’s internationally recognized artwork represents community and a sense of place in a positive and life-affirming manner. A fan of architecture, RD is currently working on drawings and paintings of vanishing historic American buildings and landscape for his Art Traveler project.
