After being crowned the winner of our IN:SIGHT 2018 competition, we are proud to release Richard’s debut body of work – inspired by the humble pooch!
Fascinated by patterns, the artist and graphic designer is influenced by Andy Warhol and 1960s Op artists, including Victor Vasarely and Richard Anuszkiewicz. He is particularly intrigued by the potential of an image to transform through flat colours and geometric shapes, describing it as “mesmeric”.
Speaking on this piece, he says: “The French Bulldog has an immediate global appeal. They are both fashion icons and accessories, emphasised in my image by the gold chain indicating status. There is something very interesting about representing a sentient, living creature, with its large, characterful eyes, ‘bat’ ears and skin folds, using an Op art texture.”
