About the Artist:
  Richard Young was born in Yorkshire in 1961 and always had a natural flair for drawing from an early age. Following completion of advanced art studies, he embarked upon a career with a local engineering company after leaving school. With a passion to travel, he has worked throughout the Middle East for 19 years as a design consultant with various International companies. Now based in Devon, he has started to develop the commercial side to his artwork via exhibitions and through his personal website Richard feels that creating and living with an original work of art is an exciting and extremely personal experience. "It should satisfy and fulfil, yet enable the viewer to open and challenge his thoughts to a different perspective and wider dimension. The senses should be aroused and the mind stimulated". He states, "Artworks should be viewed, pondered, admired, exhibited, and carefully scrutinised, with foresight given to the Artist's perspective and intention".

Richard’s passion for figurative painting, influenced and inspired by the works of many classical fine arts painters, especially Bouguereau, has helped him develop a true sense of realism and convey both mood and atmosphere in his work. He believes that the nude in particular is undoubtedly the ultimate natural subject in purity of form and he describes his nudes as both sensual and tastefully erotic. Quoting Shakespeare: "The excellence of every art is its intensity, capable of making all disagreeables evaporate, from their being in their close relationship with beauty and truth."

He invites all Art lovers of the purest and most sensuous form to enjoy his finest works.
