Richard was born in Angers in 1967.

Very young, he discovered he had a passion for drawing, a discipline which he practiced assiduously at fine arts school from the age of 14 onwards.

Preferring the more atypical path of the autodidact to the conventional systems, he rapidly acquired a very unique mastery of light and graphics (first prize for drawing at the age of 18). His interest in Art focuses as much on current tendencies as it does on modernity, which he admires in Holbein and Velasquez, as well as on the innovative timelessness in works by T. Lautrec and Hopper.

A freehand purist, his style is based on a traditional figurative method. With his graphical craftsmanship, Richard paints and conveys the urban life of the world.

His artwork is permanently exhibited in our gallery.
