An autodidact, Paniagua’s works demonstrate the clear impact of his background as the descendent of generations of master tile artisans. The extreme precision of his geometric sculptures, tondos, and wall sculptures, as well as the psychedelic colors of many of his works, speak to the artist’s meticulous consideration. Paniagua has participated in exhibitions across the United States, including a 2015 show at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin.  One strength of Ricardo’s paintings is that they offer visual forms that don’t appear to be directed by a catalogue of art historical references.  Ricardo speaks of painting as something that comes from the ground, through you and out you, somewhat like a dream.  His works appear to emerge from an internal place where form and rhythm coalesce.
