Matteo Ricciardi is currently a Fine Arts Major at Laramie County Community College. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, his natural gift for art and creativity was clear from an early age. Matteo lived in Western Nebraska before moving to Cheyenne, Wyoming in 2008. Matteo was proud to be a South High Bison and it was in the Art Classes at South, that his passion for art grew. Matteo spent his first semester out of high school traveling and studying art and architecture in France and Italy. Matteo normally prefers to work in charcoal and pencil but has recently broadened out into digital media. Matteo reflects that this project was a difficult undertaking for him, as it is his first formal artwork for use outside of a classroom setting. Matteo's goal is to use his art to send a positive message and invoke a feeling of wonder. "I find myself always in wonder by the beauty in the world around us. To me, that feeling of wonder is the greatest feeling ever and I want to encourage that feeling in others. "To provoke that feeling Matteo uses visual realism with fantastical elements.
