Rica Fava French , 20th century , male. Born in Mont-St-Aignan. Painter. Murals. Nouvelle Figuration. Rica Fava's paintings are rich in matter and colour and seem to evoke the fabrics and objects of a lost civilisation. The dense shapes and intriguing faces look as though they are carved in wood, like Aztec statues.
