About Roberto Del Rio:

Roberto del Rio was born in Mexico City. From his early street collections, he sketched and translated his thoughts into color through which he realized that his real interest was focused on the creative and aesthetic art. Self-taught, Roberto’s work is expressionistic. Roberto del Rio  set up a studio in Mexico City and began to paint without letting any external influence affect his style. He shut the door behind him and perfected his art and how he looked at the world.
