Richard Blunt

Born in Stourbridge in the West Midlands Richard’s favourite place to be was outside but if he was ever inside he loved to be creative, especially with art and later on playing guitar and music.

After dropping out of Art College he spent the next few years gigging with various bands up and down the country before he decided to go back and reclaim his education. It was a toss-up between studying art and studying music, and decided to go for music.

After dropping out of Art College he spent the next few years gigging with various bands up and down the country before he decided to go back and reclaim his education. It was a toss-up between studying art and studying music, and decided to go for music.

However, while at university Richard was inspired to try oil painting and was instantly hooked. Before he knew it friends and family were asking if I could do portrait commissions and ironically soon the art was helping to pay for his education in music.

Richard has been a massive fan of film and music his whole life and takes influence from them both when he paints. A lot of his very early work contained musicians or scenes from films and he still finds himself scrambling for the remote to pause a film because he has seen something that would make a great painting.

“I only really paint the things that I love and the things that inspire me. I also like to try and tell a story or create a bit of mystery. A book, film or song can do this but they have more time, the challenge is to capture a similar feeling in the snap shot of a single image and this is what I strive for. I am never truly happy with a piece unless I feel it holds enough mystery to stop and intrigue the viewer, if only for a moment.”
