Richard Shaoul was born in 1985 in New York City. He is a self-taught American artist. His mostly fictional works contain both natural and supernatural dream-like elements inspired from his own deep imagination. Richard defines what it means to be an artist without limits or guidelines. His paintings exhibit that endless possibilities are indeed fathomable. His extreme precision and attention to detail distinguishes him from his counterparts.
His works, typically in charcoal, portray surreal scenes with rich textures and depth, intense contrasts and eccentric exaggerations; regardless of the subject. His works, both magnificent and endearing, provide a glimpse into his ever-so abstract mind.
Richard produced his best pieces following extended reclusive periods in hiding, out of reach from the public. The gallery is pleased to be representing a private collection of his most recent works.
