About Rick Barcelow
Rick Barcelow started making Architectural Visualizations in 1979, long before digital tools revolutionized the industry. His fine art background formed the basis for his mastery of the computer-generated images of today. For many artists of the time the transformation to the digital format was impossible to make. Rick took an active step forward and enrolled at the prestigious 3D Training Institute in New York City. Upon completion of his courses he quickly landed a position in the rendering department of Perkins and Will Architecture, currently the second-largest architectural firm in the world. While there he learned additional skills from the master artists in his department and emerged with the world-class skills he brings to his own Architectural Visualization firm today.
