Rivero's work aims to capture the supernatural elements of everyday, real experience, intertwining the ways in which reality seem surreal, especially when related to violence, pain, and grief. As described by Paul D'Agostino for L Magazine, Rivero's work, "is full of surprises that are not exactly stunning, terrors that aren’t really scary, notes of humor that aren’t necessarily funny, fantastical figments that are actually just real, and barely nightmarish murmurs that hum, also, in tones of just-awoken awareness, such that the dream is at once active and over. [...] A wonderful walk through the fanciful normalities and quotidian strangenesses of dreams—or of the blurred focus and liminal discomforts of what it looks and feels like to be dreaming. [...] the works lure you in while lulling you deeply into some cognitive elsewhere."
Rivero has been awarded a number of awards and residencies including, Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant (2018), Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2017), The Fountainhead Residency (2016), Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant (2015), Roswell Artist in Residence Program (2015-16), Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program (2014-2015), Robert Schoelkopf Memorial Travel Grant from Yale University (2011).
In an article for Hyperallergic, Benjamin Sutton describes the figures, symbolism, and mysticism in Rivero's painting titled Homage to the Three Three (PE NYK) (2015), "[it] has a ghostly head floating (or painted) on a brick wall. Around the corner flames shoot from a window, while a cluster of numbers apparently tagged on the wall tempt the viewer’s inner cryptographer. [...] Rivero’s piece is full of lovely painterly effects, from the thickening series of lines that make up the figure’s fan-like hair to the precise, Op art-ish grid of brick outlines. The painting is full of opaque symbolism." And in the Brooklyn Rail, Alex Jen describes It Happened on the Corner (2014), on view in Lure of the Dark At Mass MoCA in 2019, "a man lies sick on the ground as pairs of scuffed oxfords walk past. The sidewalk is painted to look like board game tiles. A smoke-stained sliver filled with monsters projects out of his belly like a magnified microscope illustration, and combusts at the bottom in a brilliantly painted fire so thick and crusted it looks whittled." Jen continues by describing the symbolism in another painting, Ask About Me (2017), "A nervous, coded pictograph of one's personal interiors, little crosses Mark Graves in the dark among pyramids, faceted gems, and empty cars."
He received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts (2006), New York, NY, and an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University School of Art, New Haven, CT (2012). He attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2017.
