Biography

Blah Blah blah….cho mon’
French artist born in Rennes and settled in Britain since 2001, Richard range extends from activism to art community projects to also spontaneous artist interventions and performances as well as pursuing his graphic work where he does not content in one style or one technique.
He started oil painting in his early teens where he has shown promising abilities just as he did in his pencil portraits and he nurtured a deep passion for seascape and the ‘avant-garde’ of modern painting from the end of the 19th. In those early years, he is aiming at producing quality pictures that he could sell so he could gain a financial independence from a system  that he early recognized as oppressive and restrictive.
