Born and educated in the UK, Richard has spent the past two decades working within the luxury fashion industry based out of London, Los Angeles & Dubai. While his experience working with the world’s foremost designer names to some degree informs his manipulation of imagery, his artwork is predominantly concerned with the modern day fascination with creating digital versions of personalities and lives online. Socio-political, economic and religious issues clash with the relentless thirst for consumption of everything and anything new. To this end, the camera and the mask are two contradictory themes at the heart of his work.
