Meet the Creator

Large-format art for Interior Design | graphic and photographic | enhancing spaces.

Rica Belna, Austrian, has called Berlin, Germany her home since 1993. At the age of 16 Rica started to explore photography. This initial interest and involvement in photography as a hobby, led to Rica’s full-time artistic work starting in 2004.

In 2006 Rica switched to digital photography, which opened up an entirely new venue of artistic and creative work. She now uses DSLR and medium format cameras. The opportunity to aesthetically affect Rica’s work provides great possibilities and capabilities in her creation of large format artworks. In addition Rica developed original photo-techniques, which produce the unique style seen in her photo-design works. Latest developments in digital cameras, image editing and printing processes directly support the top quality requirements Rica puts in her art, as well as her preferences for working on large size imagery in her assignments. She says: “My creative potential grows with the possibilities that come my way”. Starting in 2008, Rica has been developing unique photographic designs and new graphic design techniques for large-format printing. These pieces have been up to 25 meters long (approx. 75 feet). Many of these artworks have been installed in 5-star hotels, office buildings as well as wellness-resorts.
