Narrative Paintings by Richard J. Oliver
Richard J. Oliver was born in Wales having a an honorary degree in Fine Art from the University Of West of England and undertaking a Masters in Fine Art UWIC Wales. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California and has been exposed both in the US and UK having solo exhibitions in both countries.
His work is lyrical and he supports that as follows: “My art has been and continues to be a report on culture and society and shows the more honest side of these crutches that our humanity relies on. I believe therefore my work has more in common with the folk songwriters […]. Some comparisons of my works have been with Irish folk songs and the political and social commentary of artists like Bob Dylan“. He tries to tell a story through his paintings and he does it wonderfully. Selected artwork from his career is presented. Enjoy.
