Richard J S Young
Watercolour, Pastel, Oil & Photography
Richard is a contemporary artist and photographer. His practice explores various adventures in colour, exploring material properties, gestures and marks to express his themes in expressionist works that are strongly driven by the music that he listens to during painting or drawing and words from lyrics of songs or Shakespeare. Similarly, photography explores the arbitrary, colour, movement and experiments with emphasis on the abstract and structure in the street, landscape and urban environment in particular, images tend to lean towards the painterly.

Studied at University of Kent at Canterbury, University of Bristol, UWE [Queen’s Road, Bristol], UCL Slade Summer Schools. Collectors in UK/EU, US and Asia.
