Rik Jonna, a self-taught artist, was born in Detroit MI. From early childhood he developed an interest in drawing and painting propelling him to enter contests and excel in the arts. At the age of 12, he also began playing the guitar and while in his teens, befriended pop-jazz guitar great George Benson. Rik’s passion and love for the instrument ultimately motivated him to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston MA, where he earned a degree in Arranging & Composition. He has since co-written with Grammy Award winning guitarist Earl Klugh, and over the years has studied privately and taken Master Class lessons on a personal basis with his mentor and “big brother” – jazz guitar virtuoso – Pat Martino.
Rik came to WunderWebs, logo in hand, and a very clear concept of the colors and layout he wanted in a website. The perfect client! After a few phone calls, interviews and emails, the WebGoddess was able to translate Rik’s vision into the website you see today. Avantzato.com may look clean and sleek to the casual observer, but behind the scenes there is a lot going on! Media files, slideshows, image galleries, Gig calendar, videos, embedded PDFs and branded music player all represent a rather complex creation, seamlessly brought together by the WebGoddess. Avantzato.com is also a showcase of Rik many talents — art work, sculptures, musical compositions, and audio files.
So why don’t you grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and spend some time touring Rik’s online world at Avantzato.com. Fascinating imagery, thought-provoking lyrics, intricate finger-style guitar music — all provide magic to the eyes, a delight to the ears and refreshment to the soul.
