Riccardo Pezzoli, Brescia, ITALY

"Is this a Self Portrait" 
Riccardo writes that Portraits often produce half a likeness of the person portrayed and half a likeness of the painter who is making the work. 
This portrait was done without a mirror, using only his memory of himself. 
Collaged geometrics and symbols added to the work adding to mysterious qualities we each have.
