Ritchelly Oliveira is an illustrator and portrait artist from Goiania, Brazil.
Ritchelly explains his work by saying, “When I start a project I enter a phase where everything seems to slip through my fingers… I spend my time drawing. Drawing has accompanied me since my youth. I could say I express my thoughts through this technique. My illustrations reflect past loves, the sensation of lightness, gaps that I haven’t been able to close. The fragments of what I am and what I believe in are caught there. There I freeze my feelings which personify my greatest vulnerabilities; vulnerabilities that feed and end up representing my work.”
