Event Description Dickie Islands is an alter ego created by artist Ricardo Islas. The name Dick (Dickie) Islands is the English translation for the name Ricardo Islas. Dickie made his debut at Voz Alta on April 4th 2009 with the solo show titled, "Art for the criminally insane." Ricardo was looking for a way to create low brow art that wouldn't be tied to his other art work. The creation of Dickie Islands was a way to paint without boundaries. Dickies subject matter varies from futuristic Mexican robots to cannibalistic rabbits. His work makes you think , laugh and question the world we live in.
