Richard Want has been engaged in making art from a young age and working as a professional Artist since 1984 when he opened a Design and Tattoo studio, D.K. Design in Gillingham Kent. Well versed in the design business in 2000 Richard decided to pursue his love of fine art. He is qualified with a BA (hons) degree in fine art and an MA in fine art.
Richard is equally competent working with both Oil and Acrylic paint, and as his work has progressed he has become heavily influenced by JMW Turners use of
light. Richard takes full advantage of living on Romney Marsh in Kent with its spectacular views and extraordinary light influencing his work.
Richard’s work has been acclaimed in many exhibitions, notably in Alicante where in his one-man shows in Rojales and Quesada in 2003/2004. Recently his work
has been shown in the ‘Litmus’ Show, Folkestone, The ‘Current’ show, Canterbury and his latest exhibition, `the nearest faraway place' at Beach Creative, Herne Bay.
