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.
In his late teens, He was involved and supported the new emergence of Reggae Roots in France and Techno Music Free Party and has organized a few events with his friends and a was also selling his pictures on the coast of Bretagne (Fr.) during summer time.
He painted during 2 years when living in South London mainly using quick sketching methods and watercolour but resume a normal day job when he arrived with his patner in Gravesend in 2003.
He only has properly restarted his art activity in 2009 when he enrolled on a Art degree with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) where he received a BA(HON) in Fine Art at the Canterbury campus in spring 2013, concentrating principally his practice on sculpture methods with an interest in the theories of Social Sculpture.
He is now working on strengthening his portfolio and he is taking commissioned work.
