Born in the Midlands in 1976, Richard’s artistic leanings were obvious from an early age. As a child he dreamed of being a painter, and he regards himself as one of life’s lucky ones, gifted with the talent to turn dreams into reality.
After graduating from the University of Central England with an impressive First Class Honours degree in Visual Communication, Richard became a professional illustrator of childrens’ books and undertook numerous other design projects. He was soon invited to display a selection of his work at the New Designers Exhibition in London and Images 24, an exhibition which opened at the Royal College of Art and then toured the country at selected galleries. In addition to his painting and illustrating, Richard lectures at various institutes of Art and Design, but points out that his first love will always be painting.
Lovingly executed in acrylics or oils, his glowing landscapes explore the lustrous shades of Provencale summers, and possess an immediacy and charm that have enchanted art-buyers across the UK. His broad and jagged brushstrokes blend with surprising ease to create harmonious pastoral images, which never fail to evoke memories of our best and longest summer days. His numerous exhibitions have provided him with a wealth of new ideas ensuring that this bright, young and dynamic talent has a great future ahead of him.
" I like the idea that when the weather is grey and wet, you can look at one of my paintings and experience the warmth, and feel the colour lift the spirit."
New work by Richard Pargeter will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
