理查德·沃茨

理查德·沃茨来自英国,曾就读于伯恩茅斯艺术与设计学院和埃克塞特艺术与设计学院。在1996年获得三维设计专业的荣誉学士学位后,他为多家制造家具和主题公园造型的公司工作。1998年,他开始教授设计,并获得教育学研究生证书。他在肯尼亚和南非任教之前,在英国教授艺术和设计。他一直在每个国家实践他的艺术,并制作过大型金属长颈鹿作品,以帮助促进塑料瓶的回收利用。


理查德曾在英国的一系列工艺博览会上展示他的作品并直接向公众出售。在过去的6年里,他一直在北京生活和工作。他说,他从周围的世界,尤其是从他在多塞特农村长大的童年时代获得灵感。他目前正着眼于从自然中提取想法,大规模地把表现主义风格运用在油画作品中,并试图捕捉夏末的空灵品质。


他花尽可能多的时间在“伟大的户外活动”上,用徒步旅行和山地跑与大自然交流。他利用这段时间捕捉图像,思考如何在画布上描绘它们。他说这些安静的时间给了大脑思考和运转的时间。活着,开心,顺畅的呼吸。


Richard Watts

Richard Watts is from the United Kingdom and studied at Bournemouth College of Art and Design and at Exeter College of Art and Design. After completing a B.A. with honors in 1996 in 3-dimensional design, he worked for various companies making furniture and theme park styling. He trained to teach design in 1998 where he was awarded a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.   He then taught art and design in the UK before teaching in Kenya and South Africa. He always practices his art in each country and produced large scale metal giraffes to help promote the recycling of plastic bottles.


Richard has been showing his work through a series of craft fairs in the UK. Selling direct to the public. He has been living and working in Beijing for the last 6 years. He says that he draws inspiration from the world around him and especially from his childhood years growing up in rural Dorset. He is currently looking at abstracting ideas from nature, working in oils on a large scale and in an expressionist style and trying to capture the ethereal qualities of late summer.


He spends as much time as possible in the ‘great outdoors’, hiking, trail running and communing with nature. He takes this time to capture images and think about how to portray them on canvas. He says these silent times give the mind time to think and process. Time to live, time to be happy and time to breathe.
