Richard Shipley

Richard Shipley

Born: 1973

Hometown: York

Based in: Bristol

Richard is an abstract painter who originates from York, North Yorkshire and is now a resident of Bristol in the South West of England. Richard’s love of art began in 1987, when he was introduced to graffiti art. This inspired him to pick up the can, and the rest is history. Over the years Richard’s work has evolved from his early graffiti writings to the non-objective abstract aesthetic we see today. Heavily influenced by the dynamism of the Italian Futurists such as Umberto Boccioni and the geometry of Kazimir Malevich and the Suprematist movement, Richards keeps roots in graffiti art.
