You are the Art God correct

Ricardo Paniagua

Well, I am actually the real art god which means that not unlike many worldly systems you will be sure to encounter blasphemous material

in the world

SOnia Semone

That’s truly potent. 

How did you set out on this path?

Ricardo Paniagua

Yes it is potent. This is what happens when you have a brain that is better equipped than your mom’s outdated vaporwave calculator. I didn’t set out on this path. One day while in heaven I decided to become the holy incarnated word again in order to prevent the new wave of cuckolds from destroying art.

SOnia Semone

Your art is painstakingly meticulous. Has it always been this way

Ricardo Paniagua

No, I used to buy kiddie pools and fill them with vats of watercolors and splash around in them and then run into brick walls head first. Pain was still involved at that time as well but in other forms.

SOnia Semone

Did you ever show it?

Ricardo Paniagua

At that point in my career no one took me seriously so unfortunately that work was never seen

SOnia Semone

They do now though. You’ve had quite a repertoire of shows and awards and you aren’t really old AF yet.

Ricardo Paniagua

Yes, that is correct. My objects manifest have thus far garnered a fairly noticeable sterling provenance for a high-style outsider.

What’s next on your artdar


For my next act I will be executing a performative art piece dealing with everything from selfies to memeology at the Nasher Sculpture Center in anticipation of the highly anticipated Kathryn Andrews exhibit.

SOnia Semone

Can’t wait to see it! 

Do you have a favorite piece that you have ever made.

SOnia Semone

Beautiful. Where was this and can you tell me about the piece.

Ricardo Paniagua

Let’s not talk about where this was because I only used the space to photograph the piece. This is a 100 foot x 15 foot abstract painting titled “Long Distance Love”. I painted it with a variety of broom styles and about 100 gallons of household paint.


The space was only able to accommodate half of the entire work so this is a 50 foot long section of it. The entire work is in 2 sections. Both 50 feet by 15 feet. I painted it on the ground on a soccer field.

SOnia Semone

That’s quite amazing

Ricardo Paniagua

It’s currently in storage folded up

SOnia Semone

I was just about to type that it looked very love filled.

SOnia Semone

Thank you for your interview! It’s been fun. One last question before we go. Are you zoroastrian

Ricardo Paniagua

In a past life while in Persia, I was.

SOnia Semone

May Mazda be with you 

Ricardo Paniagua

I prefer the 1999 Toyota Corolla, but thank you!
